Southwest Utah Public Health Department is committed to providing information to residents and visitors with a website experience that is accessible to everyone, including users who experience any disability, including those of sight, hearing, neurological, motor or other challenges that affects their capacity to access and understand the information presented on our website. This can also mean users who experience other barriers such as technological, economic, or other challenges not covered by this statement.
To the best of our ability, we will adhere to the following guideline areas:
Website will be presented with design standards that allow for visual, motor, neurological, or other barriers to access. In general, this means that our pages will be presented with designs that consider color standards (contrast), screen size (responsiveness), the ability to adjust font size as needed, and other design methods that increase readability and understanding.
We will use technological platforms that adhere to the highest levels of accessibility as reasonable and provide the broadest audience of users the ability to obtain information from our websites. We will do our best to ensure that downloads are marked with the file size to allow users with a metered connection to avoid downloading large files.
Information will display in a way that allows the most users to read and understand it to the best of their ability. We commit to using natural, non-technical language and avoid confusing jargon or acronyms. Links will display in simple, relevant text, and where they are available, audio and video files will have attached transcripts. Where available, translation into other languages will be provided.
In general, the guidelines we follow are established by the WC3 and are known as WCAG 2.0 and 2.1. We will perform frequent testing of our websites and content to ensure that these guidelines are followed.
