  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software

Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, please contact us.

Non-accessible content

The content types listed below are non-accessible for the following reasons:

  • some of our videos are not captioned and rely on auto-generated captions that may not be completely accurate
  • some of our images may not have text alternatives, so people using a screen reader cannot access the information. We are working to add text alternatives to all our images and for any new content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards
  • some of our PDFs may not meet accessibility standards.

We do not believe there is any content on this site for which we need to claim a disproportionate burden.
