Accessibility Statement for the Tennessee Disability Coalition's Website

The Tennessee Disability Coalition is committed to providing a website that is inclusive and accessible for everyone, regardless of technology or ability.

Measures to support accessibility

Tennessee Disability Coalition takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of the Tennessee Disability Coalition's website:

  • Include accessibility throughout our internal policies.
  • Integrate accessibility into our procurement practices.
  • Appoint an accessibility officer and/or ombudsperson.
  • Provide continual accessibility training for our staff.
  • Assign clear accessibility goals and responsibilities.
  • Employ formal accessibility quality assurance methods.
  • We consult multiple Tennesseans with varying types of disabilities in our design process.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define the requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The Tennessee Disability Coalition's website is fully conformant with WCAG 2.0 level A. Fully conformant means that the content fully conforms to the accessibility standard without any exceptions.

Additional accessibility considerations

Our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level A conformance; however, our site uses the ReciteMe layover technology as an added layer of accessibility. The layover allows users to access our site in 90+ languages, as well as adjust preferences in site color, font types and styles, screen masks, plain text mode, and audio downloads of on-screen text.
