At HOPE Wellness Institute we believe in accessibility. We have taken extra steps to make sure our website is ADA compliant for people with disabilities. Our website theme (structure, colors, font size, etc.) and core theme features adhere and are consistent with prevailing standards. We will continue to review our website frequently to maintain accessibility.
We continue make every effort to implement the recommendations of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
There is no single definitive test of conformance to Level AA of the WCAG but we have used a variety of methods for assessing our accessibility, not limited to but including physical tests using screen readers and keyboard only. If you find a part of the site that you feel does not conform to Level AA of the WCAG or are having difficulty getting the information you need, please use one of the methods below to let us know so that we may rectify it.
HOPE Wellness Institute strives to make every page accessible to users but cannot guarantee that every page conforms to WCAG 2.0 Level AA.
Some pages have partial conformance due to the use of 3rd party vendors. As such
HOPE Wellness Institute does not claim full site-wide conformance, instead a partial conformance, as defined by WCAG Level AA 2.0. HOPE Wellness Institute cannot ensure conformance of crucial third-party plug-ins and widgets.
Our conformance claims only extend to pages within the schempersace.com domain.
HOPE Wellness Institute has used WCAG guidelines for conformance as suggested by the Department of Justice.
HOPE Wellness Institute chose to use WCAG for conformance because they are determined by the W3C, the consortium that makes the guidelines for the Internet, worldwide.
HOPE Wellness Institute uses automated testing as a baseline for conformance but understands W3C's position that 'there is as yet no tool that can perform a completely automatic assessment on the checkpoints in the guidelines, and fully automatic testing may remain difficult or impossible'.
