As the largest worldwide manufacturer of assistive technology products for those who are blind or have low vision, Freedom Scientific is committed to providing a website with the highest accessibility standards for all people with disabilities, including visual impairments, learning disabilities, physical impairments, and other forms of disability.
Accessibility StandardsOur website uses the WCAG 2.0 guidelines from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It also uses criteria included in the Section 508 Refresh Report, the proposed new Section 508 Standards.
All links have descriptive title attributes to inform visitors of the link destination. All content-bearing images use alternative attributes (alt-text) to identify the image. All pages contain a “Skip to Main Content” link to facilitate navigation by screen readers and other non-mouse modes of input. Many of these design elements help people with eye conditions such as macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy, and retinitis pigmentosa.
