Web Accessibility Statement

Our Commitment to Accessibility

By Dale V.  |  Power Equipment Expert

Power Equipment Direct is committed to making its website usable by all people, including those with disabilities by meeting or exceeding the requirements of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level A/AA (WCAG 2.1 A/AA). We strive to make our site an equal experience for everyone. 

We continue to monitor our site and make sure that all content provided is accessible to all visitors. In order to help us in this process, we have engaged The Bureau of Internet Accessibility, an accessibility consulting company, to conduct a full accessibility audit consisting of both automated and manual testing of our website using BoIA’s A11Y® platform which provides us with specific recommendations that will assist us in ensuring that our Web presence is in conformance with the WCAG 2.1 A/AA. 

 

Disclaimer
It is important to note that efforts to the website are ongoing as we work to implement the relevant improvements to meet WCAG 2.1 A/AA guidelines over time.

We are dedicated to meeting all of your accessibility needs. Should you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of this site or need assistance in using the processes found within this site, we have a team ready to assist you.

Third-Party Applications
While you are visiting our site, you will notice that we make use of third-party sites such as Pinterest, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, and Google Maps to provide information about Power Equipment Direct. Though individuals may have challenges with access to this particular site, Power Equipment Direct does not control or remedy the way content is portrayed.

Power Equipment Direct is dedicated to accessibility, diversity, and inclusion. We believe all of our guests should be able to easily shop online and access all of our other web sites and digital offerings.

Whether you’re using assistive technologies like a screen reader, a magnifier, voice recognition software, or switch technology, at Power Equipment Direct, our mission is to Make Buying Technical Products Simple.

 

PowerEquipmentDirect.com Accessibility

We make every effort to ensure we comply with online usability and design requirements recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) in its Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.  We regularly test our sites to ensure we meet or exceed that standard, and we consistently look for improvements in performance, speed, and accessibility.  

 

Software Recommendations and Settings

We follow W3C's globally recognized standards to provide content that is compatible with computer-based assistive technologies and browsers. We recommend using the most current versions of the manufacturer's assistive technology applications, along with current versions of browsers. 

 

Additionally, we support screen magnification technologies and accessibility features — like zoom, color, and other image controls — that major browsers provide.

We don't provide assistive technology applications or browsers. Please visit the individual manufacturer's site for information about how to obtain them. 

 

Steps We've Taken to Improve Accessibility

Here are some of the items we've addressed to make our sites are as easy to use as possible for all of our users:

 

Site Structure

We're worked to include appropriate headings, lists, paragraphs, and other formatting features for improved usability with assistive technology.

 

Text Equivalents

For users who can't see images or hear audio, we’ve been working to ensure all of our images and multimedia have alternative text, captions, and transcripts to interact with on our sites.

 

Full Keyboard Access

We’re developing new pages with keyboard accessibility in mind so that users can easily tab through a page to find the content they need.

 

Site Consistency

Our sites are built on consistent templates to ensure consistency; that way, once you’re familiar with how our pages and menus work, you can expect similar functionality across each site, each time you visit.
