Reminder to use these ADA Compliance Enhancements
 

  • Photo Gallery - Remember to enable the controls to allow site visitors to play/pause and  prev/next the rotating photo galleries.

  • Content Editing - Except for linked text, underlining text causes compliance errors. If you have non-linked underlined text, please remove the underline by using the "Remove Format" editor option.

  • Content Headings - The format drop list has been standardized to Heading 1 - Heading 6 so that it is obvious what headings to use to properly outline your content. Remember not to skip Heading Levels!
