TDLR is committed to making its website accessible to all users. To make the site more accessible, we include several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.
A descriptive text equivalent is provided for images and other non-text elements, aiding users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Skip tags are employed to allow readers to skip beyond redundant content, such as page headers. Clear and predictable navigation is provided throughout the website.
Major reports and other publications that are on the website are generally available in HTML or other accessible formats. Some reports and documents are available on the website as Adobe Acrobat PDF files. We are in the process of ensuring that legacy PDF documents are made accessible if possible, and that new PDF documents are published in an accessible format.
Formatting, functionality and development of content for the website is performed with the intention of conforming to the requirements of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
The Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation is committed to making its website accessible according to the requirements found in 1 TAC 206/213. To improve the accessibility of our website, we test any major redesign with screen readers and other tools. The results of these reviews are incorporated into the website. We currently use a variety of industry-standard tools for site validation, and it is our goal to achieve the highest level of accessibility attainable.
TDLR welcomes comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities. If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our website interferes with your ability to access the information, please contact TDLR. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information.
Additional information about accessibility programs in Texas is available from the Governor's Committee on People with Disabilities.
