Our aim is to make the Familiy Action website accessible to all, including those users with visual, cognitive, hearing or mobility impairments.
The site is being made compatible with adaptive technologies currently used to help people with disabilities to use computers. This includes screen reading/magnifying software, voice-activated input software, and switch access.

Guidelines Our aim is that the Family Action site will comply with the Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines 1.0. These are the definitive international guidelines for ensuring accessibility.
The guidelines are divided into three levels of compliance: Single-A (what you must do), Double-A (what you should do), and Triple-A (what you may do). Specifically, we are working on ensuring that the site complies with Double-A standard. This means we will meet all priority one and two checkpoints of the guidelines.
