Accessibility Statement

Statement

The EDC of Sarasota County is committed to making our website accessible to individuals with disabilities. The edcsarasotacounty.com site utilizes Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0AA requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility, including:

Screen Reader Compatibility

The site features expanded screen reader compatibility, including both content and site navigation.

Improved Keyboard Access

We’ve made it easier and more efficient to navigate the site using only your keyboard.

Alternative Text for Images

Informational images on the edcsarasotacounty.com have alternative text for screen reader use.

Font Enlargement and Style

The site allows for in-browser font enlargement up to 200%. Additionally, we specifically chose fonts for ease of reading.

Color Contrast

The site has sufficient contrast between text color and background. This will assist people with low contrast sensitivity as well as people with color blindness who cannot distinguish between certain colors.
