Operationalizing accessibility best practices into our daily technology work.

 


State of Colorado Accessibility Statement 

Committed to providing equitable access to all Coloradans

Our ongoing accessibility effort works towards being in line with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.2, levels A and AA criteria. These guidelines not only help make web content accessible to users with sensory, cognitive, and mobility disabilities but ultimately to all users, regardless of ability. This website is just part of a meaningful change in making all State of Colorado services inclusive and accessible. We welcome comments on how to improve this website’s accessibility for users with disabilities and for requests for accommodations to any State of Colorado services.

Aira is Now Available for Blind and
Low-Vision Coloradans

Every Coloradan deserves equal access to essential state services. Which is why OIT partnered with Aira—an app that provides live, on-demand visual interpreting through human-to-human assistance—to offer a new service for blind and low-vision Coloradans. Users get free access for up to 30 minutes per session while navigating state locations and websites, reducing barriers to services and creating a more welcoming Colorado for all. Watch a video of Aira in action and hear from Lt. Gov. Primavera.
