The Department of Administrative Services has taken steps to ensure that sites on the InnovateOhio Platform are at least minimally accessible to people with disabilities who use assistive technology to access the Internet.
This website complies with State of Ohio IT Policy - Website Accessibility, IT-09, issued by the Ohio Office of Information Technology. This policy establishes minimum website accessibility requirements for information and services provided on state-controlled websites.
The requirements include compliance with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 which are standards created by the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative. Compliance levels are described as
- Single-A: Meets all priority 1 checkpoints
- Double-A: meets all priority 1 and 2 checkpoints
- Triple-A: meets all priority 1, 2, and 3 checkpoints
This website conforms to the double-A compliance level and many of the priority 3 checkpoints.
The InnovateOhio Platform works to ensure that its websites are accessible by periodically testing using assistive technology, such as a voice browser or screen reader program, and continually assessing the website to improve usability and accessibility.
Please note that this policy does not apply to embedded third-party elements or integrations of third-party software.
We welcome your comments about the usability and accessibility of InnovateOhio websites. If you are having difficulty accessing any part of this website, or would like to make a suggestion for improvement, please contact us at email@example.com.
