Welcome to the Education Service Center-Region 19 Web site. ESC-19 is committed to making every possible effort to ensure that all electronic and information technology developed, procured, maintained, or used by ESC-19 is accessible to people with disabilities, including both employees and the people we serve.
Our web site, esc19.net, includes several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.
Images on the site contain 'alt tags,' which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Likewise, a 'skip to' link provides these users with a method for bypassing the header and going directly to the main content each time a page is accessed.
To meet this commitment we will comply with Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act which requires that individuals with disabilities, who are members of the public seeking information or services from us, have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to that provided to the public who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on us. Section 508 also requires us to ensure that federal employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access to and use of information and data by federal employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on us.
To improve the accessibility of esc19.net, ESC-19 has asked users with disabilities to review the site and has also reviewed the site's accessibility with outside web tools. The results of these reviews have been incorporated into the web site. If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, a screen reader, TTY, etc.) and the format of any material on our web site interfere with your ability to access the information, please click on the e-mail address icon below for assistance. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information.
