Oregon Corrections Enterprises is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for all site visitors, including individuals with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. The oce.oregon.gov site is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
This site is designed to the following accessibility standards:
- Clear, streamlined user experience to support all users
- High-contrast color choices for fonts (WCAG 2.0 AA and AAA compliance)
- Typography optimized for readability (fonts, colors, sizes, leading, contrast)
- Sites provide a base level of support for keyboard navigation and screen readers
- Site is being continually improved to align with WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility guidelines
- Each page on the site has a “skip to content" link that allows users to move quickly past navigation and into main content.
- Titles, headings, body copy, and other essential elements have been designed to provide sufficient color contrast.
- Care has been taken to apply focus and hover states to interactive elements including the navigation, links and buttons.
- Pages are structured with semantic elements like header, navigation, main, and footer to help users move around more quickly.
- The homepage, region pages, travel guides, and key landing pages such as “Things To Do" have been manually tested with zoom up to 400%; keyboard navigation; with VoiceOver; and with the WAVE tool.
