We Value Digital Inclusion
In our effort to provide a fully accessible and optimized user experience for all site visitors, the Uniform Law Commission (ULC) has taken careful measure to ensure an excellent user experience, regardless of the technology being used to access this site or the specific abilities of those individuals seeking access to this site.
Improving the User Experience for Users of Assistive Technologies Web Accessibility Guidelines
As a first priority, the ULC has leveraged the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 as reference to ensure the web content made available from this site is accessible for individuals with disabilities and user friendly for everyone.
From this perspective, our website is monitored and tested regularly by web accessibility experts. As usability issues are identified, results of this testing are managed through the AudioEye® Ally Platform and as new solutions are discovered to improve the user experience, remediation is applied and/or tracked through the AudioEye system.
This website has been tested using a variety of assistive technologies.
We recommend using the following web browser / screen reader combinations for an optimized experience:
For Windows users: JAWS and Internet Explorer or NVDA and Firefox
For Mac users: VoiceOver and Safari
For mobile users: VoiceOver for the iPhone and TalkBack for Android devices
To provide the most universally accessible web experience possible, these are some of the many best practices that have been adopted across the ULC website:
- Semantically structured markup includes appropriate headings, paragraphs, and lists for keyboard or screen reader navigation and to aid in page comprehension.
- Alternative formats provided for all multimedia content, including captions and full transcripts.
- Links include unique and descriptive text that helps describe the link destination.
- ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) attributes for additional information about links and indication of new browser windows.
- Alternative attributes included for all images.
- Tables used for data; all data cells in a data table are associated with their respective headers.
- Skip Navigation links within the page header provide quick access to page content.
- Association of form fields with labels, and form error messages with ARIA attributes to the form field.
- All pages have page titles and title tags written for easy comprehension of the page content.
- We validate that all links and buttons can be accessed with a keyboard in a logical tab order, and that all content is read to assistive technologies in the correct reading order.
- Providing Users with a Free & Customizable Assistive Utility
In addition to the above-mentioned techniques and strategies – and since not all site visitors have access to assistive tools such as screen readers – the ULC has provided unique and innovative Web Enhancement Tools that provides a customizable user experience for site visitors who choose to engage it.
