The King County Flood Control District is committed to ensuring equal access to all its programs and services, including its website. The King County Flood Control District strives to make the information featured on its website accessible to all individuals, including individuals with disabilities, in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
While not every need can be anticipated nor every barrier avoided, there are some key issues we’ve tried to address in an effort to maximize accessibility of our site:
- Simple, consistent page layout and standard navigation throughout the site to assist people with learning disabilities and others who may have difficulty following less organized presentations.
- Light page backgrounds to provide contrast for users with low vision or colorblindness.
- Standard HTML ensuring that site content can be accessed by all browsers.
- Use of ALT tags making alternative text information available for graphical features.
- Menu alternatives for image maps to ensure that embedded links are accessible for readers using text-based browsers.
- Smart use of tables, ensuring that tables are formatted so as to be accessible by non-standard browsers.
- Limited use of frames.
- Limited use of applets and plug-ins.
