Commitment to Accessibility
The Rick Hansen Foundation and Global Solution Networks take web accessibility very seriously and have designed the Global Access & Inclusion Hub to be as accessible as possible for people of all abilities.
After extensive review and screen reader testing conducted by the Neil Squire Society, the Hub largely conforms with WCAG 2.0 AA requirements, meaning content is considered “Not Difficult” to use for people with disabilities.
The areas in which the Hub may fail to meet WCAG 2.0 specifications are the areas that contain third party and/or user-generated content (such as our resources center and forums) and thus fall outside our development team and curators’ control. As the Hub is intended to be a dynamic platform for global collaboration, we chose not to restrict users’ contributions, but rather to promote accessibility by encouraging our Hub community to share accessible documents and images. The Access to Information section of the Resources Center contains helpful tools and references to support users in making their content accessible, including this Guide to Accessible Documents.
We appreciate that although the Hub should be “Not Difficult” to use, your experience may be different. As part of our ongoing commitment to accessibility, we value your feedback on both the accessibility and usability of the Hub. Please let us know if you have any concerns by contacting our curator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include:
- The page that has the problem
- A description of the problem
- What assistive technology and web browser you are using
- Your contact information (optional) so we can contact you for further details if necessary
Thank you for helping us make the Hub accessible for all who wish to work towards a more accessible and inclusive world.
