Accessibility Features

  1. ReciteMe: Our website offers accessibility options to meet a wide range of needs and preferences via the ReciteMe toolbar (labeled “Accessibility”) in the upper right corner of our website.  This tool allows users to set navigation preferences, enable text-to-speech, change text sizes, change colors, and change languages.
  2. Alt Text: All images on our website are accompanied by descriptive alternative text, providing meaningful information for users who rely on screen readers or have images disabled.
  3. Clear Structure: We maintain a clear and consistent structure throughout our website, making it easier for all users to understand and navigate.

Ongoing Support

  1. SiteImprove: We regularly use SiteImprove, a tool providing accessibility analysis and reporting to help ensure our website and materials meet current and future accessibility standards. This tool is the same one used by the website of the Governor’s Office.
  2. Staff Training: We provide regular training to LVRLD staff members to ensure that they are aware of and implement best-practices in digital content creation and online resource curation.

If you encounter any accessibility barriers on our website or have suggestions for improvement, please contact us via email us at or call us at 719-742-3572.

We are committed to ensuring that our website remains accessible to all users. As technology evolves and accessibility standards continue to develop, we will strive to implement new features and enhancements to improve the accessibility of our website.
