Southern Tier Accessibility Statement
Southern Tier is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities.
We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.
Measures to Support Accessibility
Southern Tier takes the following measures to ensure accessibility of southerntierpolaris.net:
- Assign clear accessibility targets and responsibilities.
- Employ formal accessibility quality assurance methods.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG)
defines 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. Southern Tier is partially conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA.
Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standards.
Additional Accessibility Considerations
Although our goal is to adhere to WCAG 2.0 level AA conformance, content often changes which can have unknown effects on conformance.
When identified, Southern Tier corrects those instances immediately. Webpages and site content are dynamic and
as such, full conformance, while our goal, sometimes gets temporarily affected.
