Web Accessibility

Our Lady of Mercy School for Young Women is committed to providing a website that is accessible to all audiences. We strive to provide a web site consistent with Level A and AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

What makes our web site accessible?

  • Images With Alternative Text: Photographs and other relevant images on the site are accompanied by alternative text (the ALT tag.) Alt tags provide a written description of the image, which is accessible to screen readers, and it is visible when the mouse is placed over the image. This is also useful for people who have images turned off on their browser, in which case a description will display where the image used to be.
  • Fluid Sizing Display: The width of our pages changes and adapts to the width of your browser. This is more noticeable if you have a large screen and/or use high resolution for your monitor.
  • Accessible Via Mouse or Keyboard: You can use the mouse or keyboard to navigate through our information. The tab key will move the cursor from link to link.

If you experience any difficulties while visiting our web site, or have suggestions on how we can improve accessibility of this site, please email us at info@mercyhs.com or call 585-288-7120.
