Bristol Website Accessibility Statement
Bristol Community College is committed to providing accessibility to our students and community in all areas from the classroom to the web. We strive to utilize the latest technology and best practices to ensure an accessible user experience on bristolcc.edu.
We strive to adhere to WCAG guidelines set forth by W3C in collaboration with our various vendors and partner companies to ensure that bristolcc.edu meets the highest standards of accessibility. These standards are in place to create a positive and inclusive website experience.
The code and components of this site were constructed in compliance with W3C standards for CSS and HTML formats and are compatible with current browsers. Our use of compliant code will allow future browser versions to support bristolcc.edu.
Bristol Community College engaged The Carroll Center for the Blind’s Accessibility Services team in 2020 to evaluate the accessibility of our public website. Testing included automated testing products (such as WebAIM’s WAVE tool), and manual testing with Job Access with Speech (JAWS), NonVisual Desktop Access (NVDA), and VoiceOver screen reading software. It was tested with multiple web browsers (including Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Safari). The evaluation of the website’s accessibility was based on standards established under the most current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1 A & AA compliance levels). Remediation of issues found in the evaluation is ongoing.
Bristol Community College’s goal is to provide an accessible experience for all site visitors. However, different versions of assistive technologies, web browsers, and operating systems can affect the end user’s experience. If you encounter accessibility challenges, we encourage you to contact us by calling 774.357.2169, email email@example.com or fill out this form so that we may assist you if you have any difficulties accessing any content on this website.
