We continue to work on improving the accessibility of content on the website. Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make the browsing experience more accessible if you desire visual, audio, or navigational assistance.
For the Visually Impaired: If you have trouble seeing web sites and the content therein, the US Social Security Administration offers tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your experience:
Use your computer to read web pages out loud
Audio Assistance – Closed Captioning for videos or audio files: Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Some of the video content on our site is hosted on YouTube and may include captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Occasionally a marketing video provided by the manfacturer of a product or device may be embedded on our web site. As we do not control these videos, on a rare occasion, they may not include closed captioning. In that case, please alert us and we will find an alternative for your viewing that has closed captioning or, if captioning is unavailable, we will do our best to provide a transcript of the audio portion of the video.
Audio Assistance – Volume Controls: Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
Keyboard and Mouse Alternatives: If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.
*Additional Assistance: If the recommendations above do not meet your needs, we invite you to contact us for assistance by calling our practice at the phone number listed on our website or completing the contact form found on each page of the website.
