The Village of El Portal website ADA compliance

We have used “WAVE (Web Accessibility Evaluation Tool)” Chrome plugin to evaluate the site. We try to keep all text high contrast, added “alt tags” to all of the images, and used hierarchy text. We use text instead of images in the site navigation and titles. We use “ARIA roles” on navigation links and buttons.
Our website utilizes an accessibility plugin that adds many functions that help with accessibility. Screen readers can skip the menu and go directly to the content. Menus work with a keyboard and not just a touchscreen or a mouse. A visible focus border is also used.

ADA compliance in video

Village Council Meetings are streamed on Facebook and YouTube. There are closed captions available during the live meeting on Facebook. For YouTube, viewers may use the closed captions after the meeting has been published. The Village of El Portal also provides transcripts five to seven business days after the meeting. All other meetings are not live-streamed and are recorded and then uploaded to YouTube the following day. Closed captions are available on all of our YouTube videos.
