Commitment to Accessibility

ADACompliance.net is committed to accessibility. It is my (Kris Rivenburgh’s) policy to ensure that persons with disabilities have full and equal access to my digital offerings.

Experience

Because this site relies on essential third-party integrations including Stripe and WooCommerce, there are some instances of non WCAG conformance on the website.  However, these instances amount to technicalities as this website’s content and functionality are still fully accessible.

For users navigating by keyboard, note that during lessons keyboard navigation goes from the last interactive element in the content to the previous lesson and next lesson lesson links in the sidebar.

Feedback

I welcome any feedback on the performance and accessibility of this website. Email me at kris@adabook.com to provide feedback.

Standards

ADACompliance.net strives to conform to WCAG 2.1 AA standards to ensure digital offerings are fully accessible.

Compatibility

ADACompliance.net is compatible with most major Internet browsers including Chrome, FireFox, and Safari.

However, there is at least one ongoing browser-side issue with the use of Firefox and Safari on Mac with the Catalina update.  This affects tab and focus.

Per CodeGram.com:

In the end, it seems to be an issue related to Firefox and Mac since Catalina OS:

Firefox used to take the value from the user settings in System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts so just by checking the "Use keyboard navigation to move between controls" checkbox you could navigate using the keyboard. But that’s not working anymore.

Thankfully it has a quite easy solution:

  1. Go to about:config
  2. Search for accessibility.tabfocus and check that it’s set to type Boolean with value true
  3. Remove it and select Number instead
  4. Click on the add button and then enter the value 7
  5. This should work.

ADACompliance.net may not perform optimally on Internet Explorer and older browser versions.

Coordinator

As the sole owner and operator of ADACompliance.net, I am responsible for all coordinating accessibility efforts.  I work with contract developers to improve accessibility.

Testing

ADACompliance.net has been manually audited under WCAG 2.1 AA technical standards.  This website has also been tested with NVDA screen reader software.

To reduce incidence of error during audit, this website has also been scanned using automated software (WAVE and AXE) to review accessibility.

Training and Education

I have personally taken training administered by Karl Groves of Tenon.io and Jared Smith of WebAIM.org.  I have also undergone dozens of hours of informal training and education.  Rob Dodson’s YouTube channel has been particularly helpful.

Compliance

Through genuine effort and commitment including manual evaluations, consulting, and remediation, I believe ADACompliance.net adheres to best practices for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
