The State of Alaska is committed to serving all Alaskans. Using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1, Level AA as our guide, we continue to improve our content and services to make our websites more accessible for everyone. We want our content and services to be easy to access, use and understand. If you have trouble using our website, please contact our ADA Coordinator for help. We may be able to offer an alternate format or update our content to make it more accessible to you and others.

To better understand specific accessibility solutions that we employ for our Web content or to see hints on how to better navigate and use our Web site please visit the links in the left sidebar or the following links:

Cognitive impairment
Hearing impairment
Mobility impairment
Visual impairment

Please note that at this time our Web applications and pages have no requirements for speech controls. If such controls are implemented in the future, we will add speech disabilities to our list of impairments for which solutions can and will be presented.

Without meaning to get too technical, we are always working to satisfy Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level A while endeavoring to meet Level AA whenever feasible (see the WCAG 2 Checklist). In addition, it is our policy to comply with federal Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards. Do we always succeed in our efforts to make our Web content accessible? Not always. If you spot things that we could be doing better or just want to share concerns with us, please contact us using the email link below. We really would appreciate hearing from you.
