Website Accessibility Statement

West Virginia Parent Training and Information, Inc. (WVPTI) is making a conscious effort to make this website accessible to everyone. If you have problems accessing something on the current website, or have a suggestion for improving the website's accessibility, please email director@wvpti-inc.org.

Standards Compliance

We are revising and making sure this website follows WCAG 2.0 Level AA accessibility guidelines, so the site should be accessible to individuals who use various technology supports such as screen readers and screen magnification. Additional information about WCAG 2.0 Level AA accessibility guidelines may be found at (external website): http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/.

MAKING THE TEXT LARGER OR SMALLER

The WVPTI, Inc. website is designed to meet the needs of visitors with text of different sizes. We are changing our format to make it easier for you to use the browser's controls or assistive technology to change the font size (the exact method will depend on your browser or assistive technology). Headings will always be larger than paragraph text. These headings help to make the visual display easier to identify.

We are working to make sure our site uses a "fluid" design.

Images

The WVPTI, Inc. website includes images both to improve the appeal of the site and to share information. The site includes information about the image and has included the alt-text or long description in it. This feature helps visitors who cannot access the images still receive the full benefit of our website.

Menu Navigation

All menus on the WVPTI, Inc. site can be navigated using the mouse, keyboard, or touch screen. The site includes drop-down menus that are not always "screen touch" accessible. To help with this problem, WVPTI, Inc. gives the visitor the option of using the menu itself to take you to a page that provides links to each of the other sites available through our current drop-down.

HEADINGS AND SEMANTICS

The WVPTI, Inc. site supports assistive technology that allows you to navigate using headings. Major sections are described by top level headings or titles, with subsections marked by subheadings in logical progression.

Links

Links have been written out to provide our visitors with the information about the sites. Links will take you to an external website which has been indicated. Links are represented by a different hex color.

COLOR SCHEMES AND CONTRAST

The colors of the text have been selected to have a high contrast from the background to make text stand out clearly and be easy to read. Colors will follow a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1 between any text and its background. Static text (i.e., text that you cannot interact with) is in a black font.

PDF (.PDF) DOCUMENTS

Portable Document Format (PDF) is sometimes used to preserve the content and formatting of publications and other items that were intended for distribution by hard copy (e.g., paper-based). If you cannot access or read a pdf created by WVPTI, Inc. Staff, please email us: director@wvpti-inc.org

If you are using a screen reader to access the website, you may need Adobe Reader or some similar program to open and read the PDF files. If you have a screen reader, you may need Access Adobe.
