St. Lucie West Services District is a legal entity and public body created pursuant to Chapter 190, Florida Statutes organized as a Community Development District (CDD) within the boundaries of the City of Port St. Lucie. The District serves approximately 7,000 customer properties with a population of about 20,000 in the City of Port St. Lucie in St. Lucie County.
We are proud to announce that the District is embarking on a redesign of the SLWSD.org website to embrace the Accessibilty standards as outlined in the Americans Disability Act - Section 508 and the WCAG 2.0 Accessibilty Compliance standards. As such, we have installed a comprehensive screen reader for the visually impared, providing the ability for the user to adjust the font size, change to a dyslexic font, provide a skip-ahead facility, and also provide for 3 high contrast settings. Full support for access keys is available, so that users can control reading using their keyboard following the WCAG specification.
Shortly, we will be posting a plan showing the steps that we have taken and also will take to develop the Accessibilty Standards together with a time table for implementation. Documentation for the screen reader is in the new Web Accessibilty Statement section which is available under the Home tab on all web pages or by clicking the link above.
