We are committed to accessibility

Effective Date: December 12, 2022

The Jeffrey Modell Foundation is committed to accessibility. Therefore, we are actively working to assess and improve the accessibility and usability of our website.

We strive to exceed accessibility best practices

We follow the web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG, Version 2.1 AA), a universal set of standards designed to make web content accessible to meet the needs of every individual, organization, and government. As we develop new pages and functionality, we consider the principles of accessible design and development at every stage of the process.

Navigating our website

  • Site visitors can change the size of the text on the screen.
  • The color contrast ratios, or the difference between the light and dark elements on the site, meet WCAG 2.1 AA standards for low vision and color vision deficiencies.
  • Text alternatives are included for visual and auditory information.
  • Most pages can be navigated using only a keyboard.

We work to improve the accessibility of our content wherever practical

We cannot guarantee all pages of our site are equally accessible at this time. Making updates and improvements to our site is an ongoing effort, and we are aware that some areas do not currently meet standards.

Content that does not yet meet WCAG standards:

  • Some reports and PDFs are not formatted for screen readers.
  • Older videos may not have captions, accessible transcripts, or audio descriptions.
  • Older articles may not have alt text on images.

Third-Party Content

At times, our site links to third-party content created and maintained by other people and organizations. External links, embedded third-party content, and other components beyond our control may or may not meet WCAG standards for accessibility.

We welcome your feedback

We welcome your thoughts on the accessibility of our website. If you have suggestions about the usability of our site, please e-mail us at info@jmfworld.org.
