CCPR website tool expands accessibility efforts to digital space – The Times of Noblesville
Carmel Clay Parks & Recreation (CCPR) has deployed UserWay, an accessibility widget that delivers an inclusive web experience. Website visitors can now personalize their experience with a variety of visual aids and the ability to choose from over 30 language settings.
“The implementation of UserWay on the CCPR website provides a user-friendly experience for all,” said Kelvin Solares, CCPR Inclusion Program Supervisor. “It’s important to be mindful of how others experience and interact with the world. If there are ways to remove unnecessary barriers, especially with modern advancements in technology, we will. “
Inclusion is one of CCPR’s core values and all programs and facilities are designed with inclusion and accessibility in mind. UserWay reinforces this commitment to inclusion by bringing accessibility to the digital realm. The widget, which can be found in the lower right corner of any page on the CCPR website and is available on mobile, gives users the freedom and flexibility to tailor digital content to their unique needs. These customizations include the ability to set preferred button types, language, size, position, color, use a screen reader, and more.
“As a color blind person, I have always struggled to navigate websites,” said Kurtis Baumgartner, deputy director of parks and recreation at CCPR. “I really appreciate this resource, not only for our community, but for my own use as well. “
UserWay further expands CCPR’s efforts to make all experiences, spaces and offerings as inclusive as possible to meet the diverse needs of our community.
