Measures to support accessibility

Include accessibility as part of our mission statement.
Integrate accessibility into our procurement and design practices.
Appoint an accessibility officer and/or ombudsperson.

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. Joel Barth is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
Additional accessibility considerations
Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA Success Criteria: Images of text are only used for decorative purposes. Re-authentication after a session expires does not cause loss of data. Some videos have sign language interpretation.
Future Plans for accessibility
We intend to develop a fully level AAA compliant interface that the user can switch to, and update our system to WCAG 3.0 when the standards are completed and accepted sometime next year.
