Vermont Insights is woorking toward the following web design principles to assure accessibility.

  1. Vermont Insights will aim to meet government or industry standards for accessibility using both Vermont and federal technical assistance resources such as accessibility guidelines and the State Support Team, Early Learning Technical Assistance Center and the United States Department of Education.
  2. Vermont Insights will be available and accessible through a broad range of equipment, technology, internet speed/service and end users who are persons with disabilities. Vermont Insights works best on the latest versions of Chrome, Firefox, Safari and Internet Explorer IE10+, Please note that Vermont Insights will not be able to fully support Internet Explorer 8 or lower.
  3. Vermont Insights is easy to learn, efficient to use, easy to remember and a pleasant experience. We commonly used tools like Google maps. Many tools are also open source. Open source refers to something that can be modified because its design is publicly accessible. In this case we are referring to open source software whose source code is available for modification or enhancement by anyone.
