Accessibility

FTC.gov includes several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.

Images on the site contain 'alt tags,' which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Likewise, a 'skip to' link provides these users with a method for bypassing the header and going directly to the main content each time a page is accessed. In addition to the features that make the graphics version of the site more accessible, a text-only version provides added convenience for users.

Users can get information regarding the accessibility of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files from the Adobe Systems Inc. website's Adobe Reader Accessibility page.
