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.
The FTC is committed to making the information it delivers through its Internet site accessible for all members of the public, including individuals with disabilities. In the spirit of this commitment, the FTC strives to provide electronic and information technology that meets or exceeds the compliance requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
If you have feedback, concerns or complaints related to the accessibility of electronic and information technology provided by the FTC, including content on this web site, please contact the FTC Section 508 Coordinator via email at Section508compliance@FTC.gov.
