As a result, we are dedicated to following the guidelines established by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), legislative requirements provided by the Federal Government's Section 508 standards, and the definition of a generally accessible Internet site as defined in the Texas Administrative Code Section 206 - State WebSites. As part of our commitment, each new web page or application is reviewed and evaluated utilizing various validation resources prior to its release. Additionally, we have also included features that are designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Several of these features are described below.The Texas School for the Deaf is firmly committed to making its Website accessible to all of its users.
Some of the content that exists on this site was produced before these guidelines were developed and incorporated into our policy. However, we are in the process of developing and maintaining a Corrective Action Plan that will help ensure that older web pages and applications are brought into compliance as content is modified or issues are identified as referenced in TAC206(c).
The Texas School for the Deaf welcomes comments on how to make our website more accessible to individuals living with a disability. If you are using assistive technology and the format of any of the material presented on our website interferes with your ability to access the desired information, please contact the Texas School for the Deaf Webmaster immediately. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the desired format in which you would prefer to receive the material, the web address of the requested material and your contact information.
