Accessibility Statement

We are continuously working to improve the accessibility of content on our website, and to help our patients streamline their browsing experience. Many of our patients are managing difficult vision conditions, and it’s important that our content and care are easy for anyone to get!

Below, you’ll find recommendations on how to make your browsing experience more accessible, whatever your needs may be:

Readability Options

If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration has suggested these tips. They can help optimize your computer and browser to improve your online experience.

  • Increase text size
  • Magnify your screen
  • Change background and text colors
  • Make your mouse pointer larger or more visible
  • Set your computer up to read web pages out loud
  • Use the keyboard keys to navigate screens

Control & Navigation Options

If you find a mouse difficult to use, you can use your keyboard keys to control your computer and navigate screens.

If you find both mouse and keyboard difficult to use, and would like an alternative, speech recognition software such as Dragon Speech Recognition can help you navigate online. This software allows you to move focus around a webpage or application screen just through voice controls.

Hard-of-Hearing Options

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.

Closed Captioning tips for better online experience

Closed Captioning

Closed captioning, often shortened to “CC”, provides a transcript for the audio of a video that is synchronized with the video footage. Captions are generally displayed over the video itself, which is beneficial to the deaf and hard-of-hearing. It’s also useful for anyone who can’t listen to audio due to a noisy environment, technical issues, or any other reason.

Most of our video content includes captions. You can turn this on and off by finding a button that says “CC”, or by opening the video player options, which are usually represented by a gear or three dots.

Volume Control tips to optimize your listening

Volume Controls

Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video player and audio service also have their own, additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media player’s volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
