CICOA Announces New Partnership with Web Accessibility Market Leader, accessiBe
Diversity, equity and inclusion have taken center stage in our national discourse. And like other institutions, CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions has become more intentional about these core values and how to enhance them as we promote our agency’s mission and vision for Central Indiana.
As part of that effort, today CICOA is excited to announce a new alliance partnership with web accessibility market leader accessiBe to strengthen the relationship with the disability community through education, awareness, technology and training.
“Our staff was committed to fostering a barrier-free environment online, but creating an ADA-compliant website and keeping up with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines is challenging,” said CICOA CEO Tauhric Brown. “After learning about accessiBe and how it engages members of the disability community to build and test its technology, we knew we had the right partner to help us achieve our goal.”
From CICOA’s website, you can access the service by clicking on the blue circle icon with the universal symbol for a person, which is located at the bottom left corner of every page. You can adjust settings such as contrast and font size, or choose from one of the preset options:
