Accessibility

Information on the Web needs to be accessible to those with functional impairments in accordance with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act. We are continually working to ensure this website is accessible to everyone.

What is Accessibility?
Accessibility refers to ensuring that access to information is available to the widest possible audience. The design of a web site determines its accessibility.

Using the Site
Most visitors will be able to view the DMEA website using the most popular browsers. The site has been designed to provide easy, clear navigation and accessibility.

Style sheets used to format page content on this site are designed using cascading style sheets. This allows visitors to disable the formatting provided and apply their own formatting if they choose. Style sheets are disabled within an Internet browser's settings or preferences options. People with a slight visual impairment who need a larger font size to read comfortably will find this feature useful.

Direct links to main sections of each page are provided for those using Screen Readers - Screen readers tend to read pages from left to right and from top to bottom. The pages in DMEA.osd.mil provide internal bookmarks so that screen reader users can jump directly to specific sections of the page. This feature is referred to as a navigation menu bypass.

Documents in .PDF format
Free tools from the Adobe Corporation are also available to assist visually impaired users at:

Additionally, Adobe has added a .pdf conversion tool that will convert .pdf files to HTML pages. You will find that download at:

http://www.adobe.com/support/downloads/88de.htm

These links are made to assist in accessibility of .PDF files on this site. No endorsement of Adobe Acrobat or Adobe Systems, Inc., or warranty is implied or expressed.
