OWC Accessibility Statement
Our Policy & Commitment
At OWC, we are committed to accessibility, diversity and inclusion. As part of that commitment, we are making efforts to ensure that OWC digital properties are accessible to all individuals, regardless of ability. In doing so, OWC has a goal to comply with applicable accessibility standards included in the W3C’s WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines.
Digital Accessibility Statement
We are working to ensure our websites and online services are accessible for all and are committed to following the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and other applicable accessibility laws.
To accomplish this, we have partnered with Level Access to leverage their technology platform and 25 years of experience to achieve and sustain conformance to accessibility standards. Their accessibility technology platform is used to evaluate our digital properties in accordance with best practices and is supported by a diverse team of accessibility professionals, including users with disabilities. The platform, moreover, goes beyond minimum compliance requirements by making an assistive CX technology application available to customers who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse, or reading. The application is free to download, and it incorporates tools such as mouse and keyboard replacements, voice recognition, speech enablement, hands-free/touch-free navigation, and more.
Through this partnership, OWC continues to develop our digital accessibility program and capabilities so that we are designing, developing and testing our websites and online services for conformance to accessibility standards.
Additionally, we do work with many third-party digital content providers who self-manage their accessibility compliance. While we do not control such vendors, we strongly encourage these vendors of third-party digital content to provide content that is accessible and user friendly.
We want to hear from you - If you would like further information about OWC accessibility efforts, have other accessibility questions or feedback, or encounter accessibility barriers on our digital properties, please contact Customer Support.
