To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information.

Accessibility Design GuidelinesOur website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:
- The standard font used throughout the site has been chosen to be easily legible.
- Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics to reduce the download time of pages and increase your control.
- All images and hyperlinks, where appropriate, will have an alternative text attribute. This means when an image or hyperlink is conveying important information its content is described with an alternative text.
- No information is exclusively conveyed using color. This doesn't mean that colors are not used to organize information; instead it means there are also other, non-color dependent ways of doing this.
- We work to comply with Section 508 as well as 2.0 A and AA referring to website accessibility standards.
