Community Access to the Arts strives to make its web site accessible to all users, including people with disabilities. Our site complies with accessibility standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web. Web accessibility also benefits people without disabilities. For example, a key principle of web accessibility is designing web sites and software that are flexible to meet different user needs, preferences, and situations. This flexibility also benefits people without disabilities in certain situations, such as people using a slow Internet connection, people with “temporary disabilities” such as a broken arm, and people with changing abilities due to aging.
The needs that web accessibility aims to address include:
Cognitive and neurological disabilities
