Our efforts to improve this website’s accessibility are ongoing.
The Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. Our team is actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
This website aims to conform World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level AA and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.
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.
While we do strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. Specific exceptions will be listed when applicable. Exceptions include information and assets embedded and provided by third parties such as YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, etc. We cannot guarantee that these items conform to the same accessibility guidelines we strive to achieve.
Our team is continually seeking solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility. In the meantime, should you experience any difficulty in accessing or using the Allegheny County District Attorney’s Office website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
