Rossetti Enterprises Accessibility Statement
We want everyone who visits the Rosemarie Rossetti, Ph.D. website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding, going above and beyond the recommendations stated in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act 1998.
To help us make this website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been following the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, more compatible with assistive technology, and more user friendly for everyone. The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA), and we’ve chosen Level AA as the compliance target. We strove to also follow the seven principles of Universal Design.
Below you will find a list of the accessibility features that we incorporated into our website that ensure a better experience for all:
All functionality within our website can be achieved by keyboard users, by speech input (which creates keyboard input), by mouse (using on-screen keyboards), and by a wide variety of assistive technologies that create simulated keystrokes as their output.
A “Skip Navigation” link has been added at the top of the header on all pages. Even though it has been kept invisible, it will be detected by screen readers. That way you can focus on the main content by skipping the navigation menu.
The site has been structured in a way that allows you to take advantage of the screen reader’s heading jump facilities. That way you can easily skip through the page to access the information you need.
All our images have text alternatives that describe the information or function represented by them. We use images because Images and graphics make content more pleasant and easier to understand for many people, and for those with cognitive and learning disabilities. They serve as cues that are used by individuals with visual impairments, including people with low vision, to orient themselves in the content.
All videos are captioned, and captioning display in the video player is turned on by default. In addition, from the primary video gallery page (located at https://www.rosemariespeaks.com/videos/), links are provided to dedicated individual video pages that have full written transcriptions available.
We have ensured that we provide enough contrast between text and its background so that it can be read by people with moderately low vision (who do not use contrast-enhancing assistive technology).
Zooming in and Font Sizes.
Using, your web browser’s built-in zoom you can expand text size making it easier to read. In Firefox or Chrome, you may use the Control – and Control + shortcuts to decrease or increase the text size, accordingly.
We have implemented smooth scrolling as part of the navigation feature set (for in-page Navigation "jump" links and the "back to top" link). However, the user may override this feature by selecting "prefers-reduced-motion" in your operating system or browser settings.
