Accessibility

City Legal Services is committed to offering a website that is accessible to the greatest possible audience without restrictions due to technology or user skills. We are in constant process of improving accessibility and ease of use of the website and are working to follow common standards and guidelines.

Web Accessibility Initiative

We aim for our site to follow the Web Accessibility Initiative and conform to Level A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. We support the mandate of making the web more accessible for all users through conforming to the guidelines that have been established.

W3C Standards

Our site is constructed with compliance to W3C standards for XHTML and CSS. In current browsers, the site is compliant and displays correctly. As such, future browsers will also display according to these standards.

Exceptions

City Legal Services always aims to maintain adherence to these accessibility and usability guidelines and standards. However, this is not possible in every circumstance.

We will continue to improve our website as opportunities for increased accessibility become available. If you have any difficulties accessing the City Legal Services website please do not hesitate to contact us. We’re here to help.
