The Bee Report Online Accessibility Policy

Last updated: February 11, 2019


We aim to make this website accessible to the widest possible number of individuals seeking to learn about bees and the other information presented here.

“Accessible” means that people with disabilities have independent and timely access to and use of a product or system, in some instances with the help of assistive technologies. Assistive technologies include adaptive hardware, software and devices which increase, maintain, or improve the functional capabilities of individuals with disabilities.

We have adopted the Worldwide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as the goal for this website. The guidelines and success criteria of WCAG are organized around the following four principles which lay the foundation for users with disabilities to access and use web content:

  • Perceivable – Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
  • Operable – User interface components and navigation must be operable.
  • Understandable – Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable.
  • Robust – Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.

Implementation Guidelines

We will make good faith efforts, subject to the requirements and exceptions of the applicable laws, to bring this website into conformance with WCAG standards.
