Accessibility Statement

I want everyone, no matter their background or abilities, to feel welcome and enjoy a comfortable experience on my website.

Last updated on: Mar 11th, 2024

Key points:

  • I strive to meet the WCAG2.2 standard at the AA level.
  • I use a combination of automated and manual testing to do this.
  • Sometimes I mess up. I'm sorry about that, I want to do better and you can help me.

I've put a great deal of effort into making sure my website is accessible and friendly to all. I'm using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2(Opens external link). These guidelines are meant for designers and developers and explain how to ensure web content is generally accessible. To make a long story short, they contain about 80 success criteria split at three levels (A, AA and AAA) and while I've done my best to meet every one where applicable, I'm striving for the AA level here.

I wanted to make sure the web content is accessible for all recent versions of popular screen readers, your OS screen magnifiers, speech recognition software and any speech packages provided by your operating system. That seems like a mouthful; ultimately you should be able to enjoy the reading experience on my website no matter what web browser and plugins and assistive technologies you might be using.

My process

In order to achieve full AA conformance, I am constantly going through the following steps:

  • I scan every page using Deque's axe tools
  • I manually test each page using VoiceOver on mac and NVDA on Windows
  • I test the following browser/screen reader combinations: NVDA with Edge and Chrome on Windows, VoiceOver with Chrome, Firefox and Safari on mac
  • I run automated accessibility tests every time I change anything on my website
  • In the future, I wish to include people with disabilities in my testing process
I prioritise all accessibility issues that result from this process above all other development work.

Help me do better

Despite my best efforts, there may be things that don't work the way you expect them to. Maybe they don't work with your assistive technology or in your current situation. I sincerely apologise for that. If you can't access specific materials or content on my website, please email me at bogdan@bogdanlazar.com, so that I can make it better for you and everyone else.

Should that happen, my first step will be to provide you immediately with an alternative that you can access. I will then try to remediate the original problem so that the people coming after you will benefit from your effort.

Accessibility Conformance Report (ACR)

You can also get a copy of my ACR that describes in detail how my website supports the recognized global accessibility standards of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), ETSI EN 301 549 and Section 508 of the US Rehabilitation Act of 1973 here.
