Alaska Web Access Project
The aim of the web access project is to make websites more usable for the general public, and to provide accessibility
standards and tools for web professionals. In-person trainings are generally offered twice per year and sponsored by state
and non-state agencies and disability organizations. Participants gain a better understanding of the needs of people with
disabilities and techniques to improve usability of online content and applications. General training is offered to all
state employees to ensure documents (PDFs) are accessible for people who use screen readers.

The State of Alaska takes proactive steps to ensure people with disabilities can readily access and use information and
services that are delivered electronically. Users may request materials in alternate formats from the program contact listed
on state websites, or request help from a departmental ADA coordinator.
Web professionals assess the accessibility of state websites according to commonly recognized principles and techniques.
Websites are tested for interoperability with various browsers and assistive technologies, and wherever possible,
by people with disabilities. The state provides training consistent with
Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level A for authoring of websites, and
Section 508 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 as applicable for procured technologies.
