CCST is committed to making its reports and other public informational resources accessible to all Californians, including those with disabilities. To this end, CCST works to ensure that its website and any other information technology designed to interface with the public is designed to be usable by people with disabilities, including those who use assistive technologies. By ensuring that as broad a population as possible is able to access and benefit from its work, CCST can more completely fulfill its mandate of keeping the State informed on issues related to science and technology.
CCST works to ensure that its online presence complies with the Web Content Accessiblity Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1, as approved in June 2018. In order to facilitate this goal, our organization, although an independent nonprofit, adheres as closely as possible to the Information Technology Accessibility policy of the University of California (Policy IMT-1300). This includes a commitment to support an information technology environment that is accessible to all, and to promote awareness of this policy to all members of the CCST staff, particularly those in roles that are responsible for creating, selecting, or maintaining electronic content and applications. It also includes a commitment to remaining informed on and compliant with any changes or updates to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Standards for Accessible Design.
If you experience any difficulties in accessing CCST’s website, publications, or other materials, or you have any questions about the WCAG or CCST’s online accessiblity policy, please contact us and we will work to remedy the situation.
