"Empowering people with disabilities to live independently in our community."


In order to ensure a consistent user experience for visitors to the site we use what are known as cascading style sheets (CSS for short). CSS enable us to enforce a corporate look-and-feel to our website which ensures that a consistent font typeface, use of color and optimum text sizes are the order of the day.

Using cascading style sheets enables us to meet current legislative and industry standards on website accessibility.

Is the text on your screen too large? Or too small? Our default text size is approximately 12 points. You may find that on your screen the text is either too large or too small for your personal needs. Using the options below you can set a smaller or larger standard font size, and this will be applied to all pages you visit on our website.

Changing the font size using your browser settings:

Internet Explorer Users
Internet Explorer's default font is slightly larger than other browsers' fonts. You can change the font size in your browser by choosing View from the menu and then choosing the font size you want.

Firefox Users
In Firefox, change the font size by choosing Text Size from the View menu, and then choosing Increase, Decrease, or Normal. You can keep using Increase and Decrease until you get to the text size you want, and Normal will return you to the browser's default text size.

Site visitors can get information regarding the accessibility of Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) files from the Access Adobe Web site.

Advocates for Access is proud that our Web site meets the requirements of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and Section 508 (of the Rehabilitation Act) of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998. As with all Web sites, we are continually working to make all pages more accessible.
