HB21-1110: Colorado Laws For Persons With Disabilities
SIPA is following the State of Colorado's Technology Accessibility Guidelines
All sites on the Colorado.gov platform are accessible for the commonly recognized accessibility features such as color contrast; the ability to use big buttons for links; keyboard navigation; and support of logical header structure to name a few. We work very closely with OIT to deploy changes to our platform to address accessibility issues or the needs of our customers. We've been in partnership with OIT on this effort since 2018 or so.
