Designed for accessibility
The Park Nicollet website was redesigned in 2011, taking into consideration various needs of visitors, including individuals who may be:
- using assistive technologies that range from screen readers to touch screens to compensate for visual or mobility impairments.
- connecting to the internet from mobile devices, tablet computers, and in-car browsers.
- experiencing low vision issues and want to adjust screen displays to improve legibility.
Website design strategies are guided by Section 508 Standards of the U.S. Rehabilitations Act and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines defined by the World Wide Web Consortium.
Park Nicollet’s website is in the process of being optimized to work well with screen readers, such as JAWS®. Testing is ongoing and important changes will be made accordingly to meet accessibility goals.
