Carpenters Local 1 is committed to ensuring accessibility of its website and intranet to people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.
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. Carpenters Local 1 strives to conform to WCAG 2.1 level AA.
Current accessibility features include:
Features to support keyboard navigation and screen-reader technology
Alternative text for appropriate images
Structural markup to indicate headings and lists to aid in page comprehension
Association of forms with labels.
Existing web content produced by our organization has met our standard by 7/17/2020. New and updated web content produced by our organization will periodically be checked to meet WCAG 2.1 level AA compliance.
Some aspects of this website may be partially conformant. “Partially conformant” means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard. This may include:
PDF content: Some PDF content lacks metadata like title tags, ALT text, and other markup. A solution may be implemented at a future date.
