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, 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 will also be placed in the new Accessibilty section which will be available under the Home tab on all web pages.
