Website Accessibility

The Righting Relations website is designed to be compatible with the following assistive technologies: screen reading software; text-to-speech technology and voice recognition software; screen magnifiers; mouse alternative; and keyboard alternatives.

The Righting Relations website is not compatible with:

  • Internet explorer
  • Browsers older than 3 major versions
  • Mobile operating systems older than 5 years

Our goal is WCAG 2.0 Level AA conformance, and while we do meet some Level AAA Success Criteria, due to current design standards, the site does not meet AAA compliance. Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the Righting Relations website, there may be some limitations. For example, some external references linked or uploaded on this site may not have alt-text, or may not be screen-reader accessible. We have made every effort to find accessible versions or alternatives for external resources, and when we have been unable to do so, we have flagged the resource as limited accessibility.

We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the Righting Relations website. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers on our website or with any events or materials:

We try to respond to feedback within 1-2 business days.
