GovCIO.com Accessibility Statement

Last Updated June 1st, 2022

GovCIO believes enterprises have a powerful role to play in ensuring technology bridges the divide for people with disabilities.  Providing access to technologies that meet the needs of persons with disabilities is essential for an inclusive work culture that allows all employees to thrive.

We strive to make GovCIO.com as accessible as possible to people of all levels of ability. As our guide across the site we use the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. Our goal is for GovCIO.com to meet Level AA standards, WCAG’s recommended level of conformance for entire sites.

We consider the WCAG 2.1 Level AA guidelines as we build our platform and pages. With this guidance in mind, we:

  • Design site templates with an emphasis on color contrast, logical heading order, and configurable repeated elements.
  • Code the templates to ensure pages are usable by a variety of input and output devices, such as keyboard navigation and screen readers.
  • Ensure all non-textual elements have a text equivalent (e.g., “alt text” for images or transcripts for videos).

We view our overall site and platform as meeting Level AA conformance, while recognizing that some pages may have occasional accessibility errors. If you see any errors or have other suggestions on how we can further improve the accessibility of our site, please contact us.
