The Ohio Department of Agriculture has taken steps to ensure that this website is at least minimally accessible to people with disabilities who use assistive technology to access the Internet.
The Ohio Department of Agriculture website complies with State of Ohio IT Policies, which establish minimum website accessibility requirements for information and services provided on state-controlled websites. The requirements include compliance with the accessibility standards of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act.
The Ohio Department of Agriculture website also follows the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0 which are standards created by the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). WCAG 1.0 compliance levels are described as single-A (meets all priority 1 checkpoints), double-A (meets all priority 1 and 2 checkpoints), and triple-A (meets all priority 1, 2, and 3 checkpoints). This website conforms to the single-A (priority 1) compliance level, and many of the priority 2 and 3 checkpoints.
