Website Accessibility Statement
In accordance with the requirements of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990, St. Lucie West Services District (District) has incorporated accessibility design standards to assist individuals with a disability to have access to its website information. The District is committed to serving the needs of all of its customers and our goal is to ensure access to information for all website users. Many documents on the website are in Portable Document Format “PDF” and Rich Text Format “RTF”, which may be accessible by users with screen reading software, among other adaptive technologies allowing the user to select the right accessibility profile.
As we have stated on our Home page, the District has embarked on a audit and redesign of the SLWSD.org website to embrace the Accessibility standards as outlined in the Americans Disability Act – Section 508 and the WCAG 2.1 Accessibility Compliance standards. As such, as a first step we have installed a comprehensive screen reader for the visually impaired, that provides 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.
The comprehensive screen reader that appears on each page of the website provides a series of choices that provide various forms of assistance to viewers who are visually impaired.
On the bottom of each web page you will find a handicapped icon that will allow you full access to our website and make your browser experience fulfilling.
