Accessibility

Point of Pride is committed to ensuring the digital accessibility of our website as a top priority. We continually monitor and improve the user experience, applying relevant remediations as barriers are discovered.

 

Our efforts

Point of Pride has taken the following measures to ensure accessibility:

  • Our website was built with accessibility as a leading priority.
  • Our website was tested against Google Lighthouse and similar software and tools to identify additional issues, and then manually audited by an a11y-focused web designer/developer.
  • Our website is continuously monitored and managed by the Point of Pride team.
  • We leverage Google Forms for our application forms, which supports screen readers and keyboard shortcuts.

 

Conformance status

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. While our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, and we make consistent ongoing effort to maintain this conformance, at times our website may be partially conformant. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully meet accessibility standards at that time. Issues that are known are documented here and addressed immediately when possible.
