Web Accessibility - The short version

Some people have challenges with seeing, moving, hearing or thinking. Some people do not have good computers, phones or fast internet. Some people might have other kinds of challenges too. But everyone should be able to use Salt Lake County's website.To help make sure everyone can use our website, we will follow these guidelines:


Our website will have features that make it easier to read and understand.  We know that some people have challenges with seeing or hearing. Other people have challenges with moving their body, or with thinking. We will use colors so that people will be able to see our site better. We will let people change the text, so it can be bigger or smaller. If we find out about other things that could help people, we will try to use them. 

Computer Tools 

We will use computer programs and tools to help as many people as we can. We want everyone to get information from our website. We will show file sizes to help people with issues like slow internet.


We will try to make our website easy for most people to read and understand. We will try to make the words as easy as we can. When we use links, we want you to know what it will take you to. Links to information will be easy to understand. Audio and video files will have a readable version, if we have it. People who cannot see or hear can use their tools on our website. Most people who speak other languages will be able to read our website in their language.


There are some guidelines that keep our website easy to use and understand. We test our website to check that we are following these guidelines called WCAG 2.0 and 2.1
