We want everyone who visits the Hyde Park Jewelers website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding, going above and beyond the recommendations stated in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act 1998.
What are we doing?
To help us make the Hyde Park Jewelers website a positive place for everyone, we've been referring to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, more compatible with assistive technology, and more user friendly for everyone.
The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Hyde Park Jewelers website.
How are we doing?
We’ve reviewed our current website and determined that designing a new, more inclusive website will allow us to provide an accessible digital experience more quickly. We have hired the certified professionals at ilumino, llc to help us achieve our goal of WCAG 2.1 Level AA accessibility on the new site which we plan to launch soon.
There are some areas of our current website that we have learned may not be accessible or usable by everyone equally. We will address those areas in the new design which is being built to conform to the standard.
The following pages/documents included in the scope of work are representative of the pages on the website:
