City Accessibility Policy
It is the policy of the City of Greenville that information and services on Greenvillesc.gov
be designed to be accessible to people with disabilities.
All reasonable efforts will be made by the City to accommodate special needs of
individuals as addressed by the Americans with Disabilities Act. This is being done
through research on standards and guidelines put forth by the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility Initiative.
Some of the key requirements are as follows:
- Text will be provided for graphic elements.
- Web pages will be designed so that all information conveyed with color is also available
without color, and text may be easily sized to meet the user's sight requirements.
- Online electronic forms will allow people using assistive technology to access the
information, field elements, and functions required to complete and submit the forms.
- Access keys are available for keyboard users. By using the 'Tab' key, users on all browsers except Internet Explorer can access skip
links to Main Content and the Home page. Internet Explorer users can access skip links by holding down the "Alt" key simultaneously with the "C" for "Skip to Main Content" or the "H" to return to the site's home page.
The use of the City’s accessibility guidelines will ensure that web sites are developed
to serve the largest possible audience. Compliance with these guidelines provides
an added benefit to those users with text-based browsers, low-end processors, slow
modem connections and/or no multi-media capabilities on their computer.
Individuals with disabilities requiring an accommodation beyond those already provided
at the web portal, should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
providing contact information and a brief description of the accommodations required.
Online Request for Accommodation
Individuals also may fill out an online Reasonable Accommodation Request Form.
