Gallagher Student Health Accessibility Features
Following are examples of some of the issues that we are addressing on our websites and online services:
- Structural Markup: We are working to ensure semantic elements and techniques are used – such as headings, lists, paragraphs and WAI-ARIA markup – to help make sure that users of assistive technology can understand the content and navigate our site more easily.
- Text Equivalents: People who either can't see images or hear audio may need some form of a text equivalent to interact with our sites. We are working to make sure that images and media on our websites are accessible through alternative text equivalents.
- Keyboard Access: We are making efforts to help make sure that keyboard-only users can navigate and use Gallagher Student Health websites and online services.
- Consistency: We are working to apply accessibility best practices consistently across all Gallagher Student Health websites and online services.
