NetAlerts Accessibility Policy
We are committed to making our alert information as accessible as possible to people with visual and/or auditory impairment. We acknowledge this to be an ongoing process as new technologies and challenges arise and feedback from our users is vitally important in identifying how we can improve.
Our websites comply with the guidelines for accessible design as suggested by the World Wide Web Consortium. The pages on this website validate according to the following standards:
Alerts are available in a text based form that can be read online and sent via email or TXT message to assist those with an auditory impairment.
Alerts are available online in a text based form that can be enlarged or the Mobile AlertSite offers a simplified version of this website that is designed for mobile phones but works equally well for screen readers. The mobile version is available here http://ottawa.netalerts.ca/mobile/index.xhtml
