Autism Alliance of Canada is committed to continuously improving accessibility across all platforms and initiatives. We strive towards building spaces that are accessible and inclusive to Autistic persons.
To ensure an accessible online experience for all, our website has been developed in line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for persons with disabilities, and more user-friendly for everyone. WCAG guidelines have three levels of accessibility: A, AA and AAA. While our website conforms to Level A accessibility for all critical content, we aim to achieve Level AA throughout.
While we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it may not be possible to do so in all areas of the website. We welcome your feedback on these guidelines and on their implementation as we continue to seek out ways to broaden access to our events. Please let us know (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you require any assistance accessing content on this site, if you see errors, or have other suggestions on how we can further improve the accessibility of our site.
Facebook & Twitter
As Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn offer the ability to embed “ALT” tags in images, we will strive to have alternative text (alt-text) embedded in all images posted on these social media platforms to allow our audience using voice-over screen readers to understand what’s in the image.
We strive to include closed captions in our YouTube videos.
