Electronic and Information Technology
The State of Alaska takes proactive steps to ensure people with disabilities can readily access and use electronic and information technology. Users may request reasonable accommodation or materials in alternate formats from the program contact listed on state web pages, or request help from a departmental ADA coordinator.
Web professionals assess the accessibility of state web pages according to commonly recognized principles and techniques. Web pages are tested for interoperability with various browsers and assistive technologies, and periodically by people with disabilities. The state’s standard for training, authoring, and procurement of accessible electronic and information technology is consistent with Level A Success Criteria and Conformance Requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). The state is migrating toward WCAG 2.0 Level AA as tools, training, and resources permit.
