Welcome to our information page on how we are striving to accommodate visitors with disabilities. The information found on this page was derived from various sources such as the W3C World Wide Web Consortium and other related sites. As a government agency we are required to comply with Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act prohibits all state and local governmental agencies from discriminating against persons with disabilities and from excluding participation in, or denying benefits of programs, services or activities to, persons with disabilities.
What is Web Accessibility
Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can use the Web. More specifically, Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web. Web accessibility also benefits others, including older people with changing abilities due to aging. Web accessibility encompasses all disabilities that affect access to the Web, including visual, auditory, physical, speech, cognitive, and neurological disabilities.
Flathead County recognizes the importance of making its digital government services available to the largest possible audience and has attempted to design the Web site to be accessible by everyone. This Web site was coded to comply with both the Americans With Disabilities Act and the Priority 1 Level Checkpoints of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. Users who wish to view these specifications can do so at: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.
Flathead County will continue to test future releases of this site and remains committed to maintaining its compliance and serving the widest possible audience for Flathead Counties digital government services.
