New York Facial Paralysis is committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to people with disabilities. We seek to ensure that our website meets Level AA success criteria from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiatives (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). These guidelines are the internationally recognized benchmark for building accessible websites. The New York Facial Paralysis website has been developed using code compliant with W3C standards to display adequately on commonly used browsers and to be compatible with commonly used screen readers.
Pages on our website are being reviewed periodically by our trained staff and automatically with the help of axe: the Accessibility Engine software, to evaluate for compliance to accessibility guidelines.
