Midtown Dental Group Website Accessibility Policy

Effective Date: June 27, 2022

Last Updated: June 21, 2024

Our Commitment & Approach to Maintaining an Accessible Website

Midtown Dental Group is dedicated to providing a website accessible to the broadest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We strive to make our website accessible and easy to use by adhering to applicable standards and guidelines.

Website Standards

Our website aims to conform with the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We strive to comply with Level AA and Level AAA compliance, as practicable.

  • Screen Readers: Our website is compatible with screen reading software to assist our visitors who are visually impaired or blind.
  • Code Compliance: This site was built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS, ensuring it displays correctly in current and future browsers.
  • Text Alternative: All non-text content presented to the user, except decorative imagery, has a text alternative serving an equivalent purpose. Screen readers can present this alternate information to the user in place of the image.
  • ARIA Landmarks: We use ARIA landmarks to identify regions of the page, allowing those with screen readers to jump to different sections.
  • Skip to Main Content: Our pages contain a skip to main content link, allowing users to bypass the header content.
  • Accessible Forms: Our forms are properly marked up to associate labels with their form controls, making it easier for screen readers to present the form information to the user.
  • Headings and Lists: We use proper markup for headings (h1-h6) and lists (ol, ul, dl). This allows assistive technologies to present the heading status of text and navigate from list to list or item to item.
  • CSS: We use CSS to control the visual presentation of text, allowing users to modify text characteristics such as size, color, and font family to meet their requirements.
  • Resizing Text: Text can be resized up to 200 percent without loss of content or functionality.
  • Raster Images: We avoid the use of text in raster images, enabling user agents to read aloud any text on the page and apply custom stylesheets to make the text more legible.
  • Keyboard Interface: Our site is designed to be navigated using a keyboard or other assistive devices. All functionality is operable through a keyboard interface without specific timing for keystrokes.
  • Flashing Content: Our web pages do not contain flashing content that flashes more than three times in any one second period, avoiding potential seizure triggers.
  • Page Titles: Our web pages have titles that describe their topic or purpose, helping users find content, orient themselves, and navigate through the site.
  • Locating Content: More than one way is available to locate a web page within our site, such as breadcrumbs and site maps, to meet diverse user needs.
  • Highlighting: Most components allow highlighting by the user agent when they receive focus.
  • Default Language: The default language of each web page can be programmatically determined, aiding speech synthesizers in adapting to the correct pronunciation and syntax.
  • Component Focus: Our components do not change context when they receive focus, preventing unexpected changes such as auto-submitted forms or new windows.
  • Consistent Navigation: We maintain consistent navigation across our web pages for predictability.
  • Form Input Errors: Input errors in forms are identified and described in text, aiding user correction.
  • Proper Coding: We ensure elements have complete start and end tags, are nested correctly, do not contain duplicate attributes, and have unique IDs to avoid issues with assistive technologies.

Exceptions

While we strive to adhere to accepted guidelines and the highest standards for accessibility and usability, achieving this may not always be possible in all areas of the website.

Future Efforts

We are working towards achieving Level AA and Level AAA conformance to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, as practicable.
