In an effort to ensure access to Web-based and other electronic resources and services, the Federal and State of Minnesota governments have enacted an assortment of laws that require government Web sites to be accessible to persons with disabilities.
Accessible web pages are constructed to be useable by anyone, even if they are using assistive technology to access the web page. Examples of assistive technology are screen readers, screen magnifiers, voice recognition software, alternative keyboards, and braille displays.
In order to comply with Federal and State requirements all web pages on the Anoka-Ramsey web site must be developed with accessibility in mind. To assist web developers in this task we have provided a checklist for use. Level 1 is the minimum compliance and covers the basic areas which must be covered. We are planning additional levels in the future that will cover more areas.
