Wilderness.net is committed to making information accessible to all users. Our current website design was launched in 2009 and the following measures were taken to address accessibility:
- The site designed is mainly controlled by cascading style sheets (CSS), eliminating most tables. Tables are used sparingly, mostly with forms.
- The color palette was chosen using Fujitsu ColorSelector, a free software program that checks for legibility by people with the following types of vision disorders: cataract, protanopia, deuteranopia, and tritanopia.
- Testing for accessibility was conducted by:
- The W3C's Markup and CSS Validation Service, which checks the markup validity of Web documents and style sheets.
- Several online validators checking for browser compatibility, including http://browsershots.org.
- Several online validators checking for compliance under Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG1.0), which is an international Web accessibility standard developed under the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
- Disabled volunteers from the Forest Service, University of Montana's Disability Services Office, and MonTECH.
- General agency and public beta testers.
