People often use websites as their first step when researching something new and learning ways to improve their lives. By making websites and extension materials accessible, we help make this information available to more people – including people with visual, hearing, physical and cognitive impairments.
Consciously designing for accessibility has benefits beyond the people who use assistive technology. It makes websites simpler to navigate and information easier to understand for everyone.
As you know, ANR is transitioning its website to become an even better resource for our participants, partners and the general public. Making the new website and its information accessible will require everyone to pitch in, but it'll be worth it because we'll be demonstrating our commitment to making a positive difference for all Californians.
