The Simons Center is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone and applying the relevant accessibility standards. We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of our website. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers on the site.
The Simons Center is committed to ensuring the accessibility of its website for people with disabilities. We intend to work toward conformance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Thesimonscenter.org is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. However, we strive to make constant updates to ensure the best possible experience for users of any disability.
Additional Accessibility Considerations
Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria: Images of text are only used for decorative purposes. Re-authentication after a session expires does not cause loss of data.
Compatibility with Browsers and Assistive Technology
Upon the launch of this website, the website code (HTML) was built to WCAG AA standards, however, the user visual experience was not tested with assistive technology.
The site may not operate with ADA capacity on older versions of web browsers. Additionally, we cannot say with 100% accuracy that the Simons Center website works in browsers older than 3 major versions as these technologies are consistently updated. The thesimonscenter.org website is likely not ADA-compatible with Internet Explorer, as Microsoft no longer supports that browser at all.
Changing the settings on your browser may help improve the readability and visibility of each page. Learn more about the accessibility features of these common Internet Browsers.
