The Morton Arboretum is committed to making mortonarb.org accessible to all its visitors, including those with visual and related disabilities. We have taken a number of steps to ensure that those who use a keyboard solely for navigation, require accommodations for certain vision needs or are using assistive technologies such as screen readers, can more easily interact with the content and applications on mortonarb.org. We have been guided in these efforts by federal regulation issued pursuant the Rehabilitation Act that are designed to make websites more accessible as well as by guidelines promulgated by the World Wide Web Consortium. Key accessibility features on mortonarb.org include:
- Alternative text for appropriate images and non-text visual elements
- Heading structures for page elements
- Skip navigation links within the header
- Labels for forms and appropriate input fields
- Data table markup
The Morton Arboretum will periodically monitor and test the functionality of mortonarb.org and will work proactively to find new ways to enhance the overall usability of our website. Email us to submit any feedback related to this website's accessibility.
