Accessibility Statement

The Iowa’s Area Education Agencies” (Iowa’s AEAs) are committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

Measures to support accessibility

Iowa’s AEAs take the following measures to ensure accessibility of Iowa’s AEA Mental Health and Well-Being website:

  • Provide ongoing accessibility training for our staff.
  • Include people with disabilities in our design personas.

Conformance status

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Levels A, AA, and AAA. The Iowa AEA Mental Health and Well-Being website fully conformant with WCAG 2.1 level A and is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA and AAA. 

Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.

Additional accessibility considerations

Although our goal is WCAG 2.1 Level AA conformance, we have also applied some Level AAA success criteria: 

  • Images of text are only used for decorative purposes.
  • All functionality of the content is operable through a keyboard interface without requiring specific timings for individual keystrokes.
  • Timing is not an essential part of the event or activity presented by the content, except for non-interactive synchronized media and real-time events.
  • Section headings are used to organize the content.

Technical specifications

Accessibility of Iowa’s AEAs Mental Health and Well-Being website relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:
