Committed to Access and Inclusion
Whether you use a screen reader, voice recognition software or another kind of assistive technology, we’re making it easy to navigate our site and find exactly what you need. OPALCO is committed to access and inclusion throughout the company and online.
Accomplishing Accessibility Goals
OPALCO sets high standards for web accessibility. The co-op team is ensures that the website meets all laws and guidelines and strives to create a usable experience for all members. The team is continuously educating themselves through training sessions with advocacy groups and industry partners to stay updated with best practices.
Some recent updates include:
- Improved site structure
We’re working to edit every page on www.opalco.com to include appropriate headings, lists, paragraphs and other formatting for better usability with assistive technology.
- Added text equivalents
We’re adding alternative text, captions and transcripts to images and videos so users who can’t see or hear have a text equivalent to interact with.
- Create site consistency
We’ve created templates for our site to ensure consistency. Once you’re familiar with how our pages and menus work, you can expect similar functionality across the site, each time you visit.
