Website Accessibility Statement

Dogs4Diabetics is committed to making its website broadly accessible, including to users with disabilities or impairments that occur with aging. For guidance, we look to the accessibility best practices and standards defined by Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C WAI).

Our processes require web pages to meet a set of accessibility requirements which include:

  • Providing aids to navigation for screen reader users
  • Providing text equivalents for images and image map hot spots
  • Providing null text equivalents on decorative images
  • Identifying row and column headers for data tables
  • Programmatically associating labels with form fields
  • Using valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional markup language
  • Supporting browser settings for enlarging text and user style sheets
  • Using consistent navigation mechanisms and style of presentation throughout the site
  • Keyboard navigation of web pages
  • Identifying the primary natural language of each page
  • Pages that use JavaScript for essential function are required to test for compatibility with assistive technology.
  • Accessible HTML alternative versions of Flash content

Accessibility testing using automated tools and manual procedures is performed on new content management applications. Our publicly available pages on ibm.com are monitored regularly using automated tools.
