Statement of Accessibility
Published on Mon, 09/16/2019 - 08:00
The Orange County Supervisor of Elections, as a duly elected Constitutional Officer designated by Florida law to administer elections and voter registration for Orange County, is committed to ensuring the accessibility of its website to people with disabilities.
Web accessibility refers to the inclusive practice of removing barriers that prevent interaction with or access to websites by people with disabilities. When websites are correctly developed and edited, all users have equal access to information and functionality.
The Orange County Supervisor of Elections will be implementing the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Levels A and AA (WCAG 2.0 Levels A and AA). Web content produced by the Orange County Supervisor of Elections will meet WCAG 2.0 Levels A and AA by 2022.
During development, we will test content using assistive technologies such as screen readers, screen magnifiers, etc., and will work with end users for testing who have disabilities and who depend on these technologies. As part of this development initiative, the Orange County Supervisor of Elections will require third-party vendors providing content on its websites to adhere to the WCAG 2.0 Levels A and AA standards and will require compliance with these standards when selecting third-party vendors.
