Accessibility Statement for Maria Simpson

This is an accessibility statement from Maria Simpson, Ph.D.

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. Maria Simpson is partially conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

It is periodically checked against best practices and standards as defined by Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, WCAG 2.0, of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative.

This includes:

  • Skip links, landmarks, and headings are defined to aid in navigation.

  • Alternative text details (ALT tags) for appropriate images and other non-text elements.

  • Additional markup is used where appropriate to indicate various page elements and other media.

  • Form labels are programmatically associated with form fields.

  • JavaScript and style sheets are used to enhance the appearance and functionality of the site. Care and caution has been used to ensure contrast and resolution remain high across devices, and that if these elements are unavailable to users, that the site degrades gracefully with minimal negative impact on user experience.

  • Embedded documents and media have been made accessible to whatever extent possible.

We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of Maria Simpson. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers on Maria Simpson:
