The Community Action Council website includes several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.

Images on the site contain 'alt tags,' which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site.

To improve the accessibility of the Community Action Council website, Community Action Council has asked users with disabilities to review the site and has also reviewed the site's accessibility with outside web tools. The results of these reviews have been incorporated into the website. Community Action Council welcomes comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities.


Recent verisons of popular web browsers will tend to display our pages more accurately, as these newer browsers comply with the standards defined in the HTML 4.01 and CSS2 specifications. As development on our site continues, we are exploring solutions that will make our site even more accessible to the diverse population of our county.

There are many ways, using your browser, of customizing your viewing experience of our site. One of the most useful changes you can make for visual accessibility is modifying the colors, font types, and font sizes as fits your needs.

Internet Explorer

In Internet Explorer 5.x and 6.x, click on Tools, then scroll down to and click on Internet Options. Near the bottom right corner of this window, click on Accessibilty to view options for overriding font and color tags. You can also click on Colors and Fonts to set your default values that overriding will revert to.

Note: there are additional accessibility features on the Advanced tab.


In Netscape 4.x and 6.x, click on Edit, then scroll down to and click on Preferences. You should see a screen similar to the one on the left of this text. Double-click on the Appearance category, then click on either Fonts or Colors. Here you can choose to override any web page's font and color specifications with your own.

Note: when viewing a web page in Netscape, you can hold the CTRL key and hit [ or ] to decrease or increase the size of the font.
