Our Accessibility Statement:
CW Stockwell is committed to making our site accessible for all, including for people with disabilities. We have partnered with Accessibly, a web app which allows us to continuously improve the service we provide through our website to comply with increased accessibility standards, guidelines, and to make our browsing experience better for everyone.
Our website uses an app called Accessibly. This app uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defined requirements to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Accessibly App is following the best guidelines and is, at the time of this statement (April 2022), partially conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA.
Accessibly is an app supported in Shopify environments. The app relies on the following technologies:
Accessibly App - Features:
Because our site has the Accessibly App installed, it can be adjusted with keyboard navigation using the “tab” key (WCAG 2.1/2.1.1). For a list of all the features and tools Accessibly provides for better website experience, please see below...
Zoom | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.4
This feature enables users to enhance the size of the text to up to three times the original text for better text readability.
This feature allows the cursor to be made bigger and more prominent. An increased cursor size can aid certain site users in better site browsing.
This feature allows the colors of the website content to be inverted. For those with decreased vision, the high contrast can really help the site to be read more easily.
Tweak Contrast | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6
This feature lets users manually select from two options: to enhance the contrast of the website or to decrease the contrast.
Tweak Brightness | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6
This feature lets users update the brightness on the site. The content can either be made brighter or darker.
Grayscale | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6
Users can turn on grayscale, making the website content appear only in shades of gray. This can benefit certain users with visual impairment.
This feature can provide a supportive reading line to the site.
Convert the fonts available on-site to one of the most easily readable fonts: Helvetica.
Alt Text and Images
Ability to read alt text of images. As of now, the app has a tool that has added a feature where alt descriptions for images without them are generated using Google's Vision AI. In the event that we have neglected to manually write image descriptions for any particular images on our site, this technology greatly helps people with visual impairment browse our site. We continue to audit our site to ensure all images are coded with alt text, but we acknowledge the possibility that an image somewhere on our site was not coded properly at the time it was uploaded.
Tooltips | WCAG 2.1 / 2.5.3
Add labels to images that contain a written description of the image.
Highlight links to make them more prominent.
Hide images on the site. This provides better site readability for people with visual impairment.
A feature that allows a voice to read the text on your site out loud to visitors.
