SANDAG is committed to ensuring accessibility for our website, SANDAG.org. The content on this page describes our efforts relating to compliance with local and federal law and conformance with international standards for web accessibility.
The goal of our ongoing accessibility effort is to conform to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1, the level AA criteria; and follow California Government Code 11135, located in Section D of the California Government Code. Code 11135 requires all electronic and information technology developed or purchased by the State of California Government to be accessible to people with disabilities. We regularly test and monitor our website to ensure it is usable by site visitors who use assistive technology or who have sensory, cognitive, and/or mobility disabilities. We want our website to be easily used by people of all abilities. The tools we use to test include Google Lighthouse, axe chrome extension, and WebAIM.
Known Issues and Workarounds
- SANDAG’s PDFs may not be accessible using Adobe Acrobat Pro’s built-in accessibility tools, but we are working on updating these files. If there are any files you are having issues accessing, email us at email@example.com and we will help you.
- SANDAG’s videos are embedded on the website from YouTube. Many videos created in 2021 and after are accessible and include captions. Older videos may not have captions, and SANDAG is working to update these. Please email us firstname.lastname@example.org if there is a particular video you need assistance with.
SANDAG will continue to work toward making SANDAG.org as accessible as possible.
