Accessibility Statement

The Partnership on Employment and Accessible Technology (PEAT) is committed to providing an accessible site for all users, and strives to provide accessible information to all users, including people using assistive technology. Our site has been designed to meet the Web Content Accessiblity Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0 at Level Double-A and Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.

Pages have been designed to work with the built-in text resizing features of your browser. In addition, you can find a text size control panel at the top of each page. This control panel  allows you to adjust the font size to your liking. More information about customizing your computer or web browser can be found at Better Web Browsing: Tips for Customizing Your Computer.
