Accessibility/Help Page

The State of California's website has been developed in compliance with Section D of the California Government Code 11135. Code 11135 requires that all electronic and information technology developed or purchased by the State of California Government is accessible to people with disabilities. There are various types of physical disabilities that impact user interaction on the web. Vision loss, hearing loss, limited manual dexterity, and cognitive disabilities are examples, with each having different means by which to access electronic information effectively. Our goal is to provide a good web experience for all visitors.

We are constantly updating our content and striving to make it accessible. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact our Web Design Team.

Accessible Features

Below you will find a list of some of the technology solutions we have integrated to make our website easy to navigate, fast-loading, and accessible.

  • Skip to Main Content:

    Used to jump to the main content area.

    (Note: To visually see the link in the upper left corner of the webpage, press the Tab key.)

    Skip To Main Content Screen-Print
  • Photographs/Images:

    Uses Alternative Text “ALT” and/or “TITLE” attributes. ALT/TITLE attributes 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.

  • Breadcrumbs:

    Located at the top of each page (except for the main home page) and directly below the main navigation, provides a trail of where you are and where you have been. Breadcrumbs make it easier to navigate your way back to the root folder.

Keyboard Commands:

Navigate through our web pages without the use of a mouse.

(Note: Some commands may not work with every Internet browser version.)
