Governor's Office Lessons Learned

Governor's Proclamations & Executive Orders

The fact that the Governor's proclamations and Executive Orders are IMAGES is causing a huge ADA problem. JAWS can only read the Alternate Text, which is basically the TITLE of the PROCLAMATION/EXECUTIVE ORDER, and not the proclamation/executive order itself.

  • Need to create a new Template that is similar to the Governor's Press Releases so we can build the proclamation/executive order in a page, not a graphic
  • Attach the pdf to the page if someone wants to print the Proclamation/Executive Order with the banner/signature
  • Example: Proclamation Template (WIP)

1 Graphic cannot be read by accessibility reader, just the alt text.
