OAISD recognizes the importance of ensuring our websites are accessible to those with visual, motor, auditory, and/or cognitive disabilities. We are committed to making our information accessible to visitors with disabilities and are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available accessibility standards and guidelines. For our website, following standards means ensuring the site allows the following:
Individuals with visual impairments to use screen readers to hear the content of our site; Individuals with hearing impairments to read the closed captioning included with our videos; and Individuals with mobility issues to navigate the site even if they are unable to use a mouse.
“Accessible” means a person with a disability is afforded the opportunity to acquire the same information, engage in the same interactions, and enjoy the same services as a person without a disability in an equally effective and equally integrated manner, with substantially equivalent ease of use. A person with a disability must be able to obtain the information as fully, equally, and independently as a person without a disability. Although this might not result in identical ease of use compared to that of persons without disabilities, it still must ensure equal opportunity to the educational benefits and opportunities afforded by the technology and equal treatment in the use of such technology.
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.
