Accessibility Policy

REV. June 2023

At TEX-COTE®, we are committed to ensuring that our products, services, and digital platforms are accessible to all individuals, including those with disabilities. We strive to provide an inclusive and barrier-free environment for everyone, regardless of their abilities or technological limitations. This accessibility policy outlines our commitment to accessibility and the steps we take to achieve and maintain accessibility standards.

1. Accessibility Standards

We adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 level AA as the standard for accessibility on our digital platforms. These guidelines are internationally recognized and provide a comprehensive set of recommendations for making web content more accessible.​

2. Digital Accessibility

We aim to make our website, mobile applications, and other digital platforms accessible to individuals with disabilities. Our digital accessibility initiatives include:

a. Website Design: We design and develop our website using accessible principles, ensuring that information is perceivable, operable, understandable, and robust.

b. Assistive Technologies: We strive to ensure compatibility with assistive technologies commonly used by individuals with disabilities, such as screen readers, screen magnifiers, and voice recognition software.

c. Alternative Text: We provide alternative text descriptions for all meaningful images and visual content on our website to enable screen readers and assistive technologies to convey information accurately.

d. Captions and Transcripts: For multimedia content, including videos and audio files, we provide captions and transcripts to make the content accessible to individuals with hearing impairments.

e. Keyboard Navigation: We ensure that our website and digital platforms can be navigated using a keyboard alone, without the need for a mouse or other pointing device.

f. Color Contrast: We maintain appropriate color contrast ratios between text and background elements to ensure readability for individuals with visual impairments.

g. User Feedback: We welcome feedback from our users regarding any accessibility barriers they encounter. We strive to address such issues promptly and make necessary improvements to enhance accessibility.

3. Training and Awareness

We provide ongoing accessibility training to our employees, including designers, developers, and content creators, to raise awareness about accessibility best practices and techniques. This training helps ensure that accessibility considerations are integrated into our products and services from the initial design stages.​

4. Compliance Monitoring and Maintenance

We regularly monitor our digital platforms and conduct accessibility audits to identify any accessibility barriers or issues. We promptly address any identified barriers and make necessary improvements to maintain accessibility standards.​

5. Accessibility Statement

We provide an accessibility statement on our website, outlining our commitment to accessibility and providing contact information for users to report any accessibility concerns or request accommodations. We acknowledge the importance of user feedback and strive to respond promptly and effectively.​

6. Continuous Improvement

We are committed to continuous improvement in our accessibility initiatives. We stay updated with evolving accessibility standards and industry best practices, incorporating them into our processes and technologies to enhance accessibility for all individuals.​

7. Compliance with Applicable Laws

We comply with all applicable accessibility laws and regulations, including the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and other relevant accessibility requirements in the jurisdictions where we operate.​

8. Accessibility Coordinator

  1. We designate an Accessibility Coordinator who is responsible for overseeing our accessibility efforts, coordinating accessibility training, monitoring compliance, and addressing accessibility concerns. The Accessibility Coordinator serves as the point of contact for users seeking information or assistance related to accessibility.

By implementing this accessibility policy, we aim to provide an inclusive experience for all users of TEX-COTE® products, services, and digital platforms. We remain committed to improving accessibility and ensuring equal access and opportunity for everyone, regardless of their abilities.
