Luminis Health is committed to providing a digital experience accessible to all visitors, patients, and families.
We developed LuminisHealth.org to standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in its Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1, level AA. These guidelines help organizations make their websites easier to use for people with visual, physical, cognitive, and other disabilities.
Meeting these guidelines is an ongoing process and we will continue developing to standards that improve the experience for everyone.
Current Accessibility Features
Our compliance with WCAG guidelines includes many web design and development considerations, including but not limited to:
- Using adequate color contrast and clean fonts to improve visibility.
- Ensuring you can use the site as intended with page zoom.
- Ensuring you can navigate the site using only a keyboard (for example, through features such as focus, carousel controls, and skip to main content).
- Compatibility with speech recognition software.
- Including alternative text ("alt text") descriptions for all images so screen readers can describe them.
- Designing all interactive elements (such as buttons) to meet Google's touch target sizing standards (48px x 48px).
We test our site performance with multiple browsers and screen readers and use a variety of tools to assess and monitor compliance, including AXE tools and Google's Lighthouse accessibility testing feature. We test screen reader usability via shallow navigational methods by the VoiceOver utility and NVDA through a cross-browser/device access application.
Our approach is to first identify and assess the most severe issues for remediation. Next, we evaluate any warnings. We do not consider a page reasonably accessible until the Lighthouse accessibility score is above 80.
