Huys Foundation strives to provide excellent digital access to all. Providing increased access to technologies that meet the needs of persons with disabilities lays the foundation for inclusive cultures.

To support this belief, we strive to make as accessible as possible to people of all levels of ability. As our guide across the site we use the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. Our goal is for to meet Level AA standards, WCAG’s recommended level of conformance for the entire site.

We consider the WCAG 2.1 Level AA guidelines as we build our platform and pages. With this guidance in mind, we:

  1. Design site templates with an emphasis on color contrast, logical heading order, native landmarks and best practices.
  2. Code the templates with W3C standards for HTML and CSS to ensure pages are usable by a variety of input and output devices, such as keyboard navigation and screen readers (JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver).
  3. Ensure that all non-textual elements have a text equivalent (such as “alt text” for images).
  4. Improve navigation by placing “Skip to content” links at the top of each page for keyboard and screen-reader users.
  5. Appoint an accessibility officer and/or ombudsperson.
  6. Integrate accessibility into our procurement practices.
  7. Provide continual accessibility training for our staff.

We regularly measure our site using a variety of methods, such as browser plug-ins, in house assessments, and individual page testing. This continuous approach helps ensure that accessibility will be maintained as guidelines change and technology evolves.

We view our overall site as meeting Level AA conformance, while recognizing that some pages may have occasional accessibility errors. If you see any errors, or have other suggestions on how we can further improve the accessibility of our site, please contact us at If applicable, please include the web address or URL and the specific problems you have encountered.
