B3 Alliance, Inc. is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability. We aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make Web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance to these guidelines will help us provide a site that is more user friendly to everyone.

B3 Alliance, Inc. makes every effort to provide a good experience to all visitors to our site. For example, we try to provide:

  • Transcripts for podcasts to let hearing impaired visitors (as well as visitors without speakers or headphones) consume the content.
  • Alternative text for images to allow screen readers and those with vision impairments to make sense of images.
  • Form labels and controls that are associated with the relevant prompt.
  • Content that can be magnified using standard browser controls. Auditory and visual CAPTCHA items to provide alternative ways to consume this information.

We want everyone who visits the B3 website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

To help us make the B3 website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the B3 website, and will work towards AAA level over time.
