WEB ACCESSIBILITY POLICY                                        

1.0 Policy Statement

ClearView Geophysics Inc. (“CLEARVIEW”) is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We are continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.

CLEARVIEW’s accessibility policy aims to meet the applicable requirements under the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act, 2005 as well as under section 14 of the associated Regulation requiring compliance with the provisions of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

These guidelines outline four main principles that state that websites should be:

  • Perceivable – Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive
  • Operable – User interface components and navigation must be operable
  • Understandable – Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable
  • Robust – Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies

2.0 Accessibility Features

CLEARVIEW is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability, and aim to create an environment that enables anyone to participate fully in the use of this website.

As such, some key accessibility features of this website include:

  • Screen Readers – To assist our users who may be visually impaired or blind, our website is compatible with screen reading software.
  • Code Compliance – This site was built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. Standards compliant code means that the site displays correctly in current browsers and ensures that it will display correctly in future browsers.
  • Text Alternative – All photo/visual/non-text content presented to the user has a text alternative that serves the equivalent purpose.
  • Language Compatibility –
  • Accessible Forms – Our forms have the proper markup to associate labels with their form controls making it easier for screen readers to present the form information to the user.
  • CSS – We use CSS to control visual presentation of text. This will allow users to modify, via the user agent, the visual characteristics of the text to meet their requirement. The text characteristics include aspects such as size, color, font family and relative placement.
  • Resizing Text – Text can be resized without assistive technology up to 200 percent without loss of content or functionality.
  • Keyboard Interface – The site is designed with consideration for people unable to use a mouse. The website can be navigated using your computer’s keyboard or by using other assistive devices.
  • Page Titles – Our web pages have descriptive titles that help users find content, orient themselves within it, and navigate through it. A descriptive title allows a user to easily identify what Web page they are using and to tell when the Web page has changed. The title can be used to identify the Web page without requiring users to read or interpret page content. Users can more quickly identify the content they need when accurate, descriptive titles appear in site maps or lists of search results. When descriptive titles are used within link text, they help users navigate more precisely to the content they are interested in.
  • Consistent Navigation & Locating Content – We have a consistent navigation across our web pages. More than one way is available to locate a Web page within a set of Web pages.

3.0 Exceptions

While we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.
