Digital Accessibility Statement

Commitment to Accessibility

The State of Nevada is committed to providing access to our electronic and information technology, including our web pages and PDFs hosted in the State of Nevada's Content Management System (CMS), for individuals with disabilities in accordance with the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C's), Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 Levels A & AA, and the Web Accessibility Initiative Accessible Rich Internet Applications Suite (WAI-ARIA) 1.0 for web content.

On the Web

The State of Nevada’s Office of the Chief Information Officer (CIO) within the Governor’s Office has recognized that many State websites, documents, and other web-accessible content need to be updated for ADA compliance. We continuously evaluate existing digital content and remediation efforts have been ongoing on all websites within the State of Nevada. While this effort has resulted in progress, the volume of work that needs to be accomplished requires a coordinated effort across all State agencies.

The State of Nevada is committed to providing equitable access to information and services for all its citizens. As mandated by NRS Chapter 242, specifically NRS 242.131, which underscores the importance of technology accessibility, our efforts are in direct response to the need for accessible electronic data, ensuring compliance with the ADA. One crucial element of complying with this priority requires accessibility of electronic data which meets the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Standards We Are Committed To

For existing pages and new development, we are striving to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2 at the AA level. We are following industry standards and best practices for web development to work towards these guidelines, which can be summarized as follows:

  • Perceivable - Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.
  • Operable - User interface components and navigation must be operable through a variety of modes.
  • Understandable - Information and the operation of user interfaces must be understandable to users of all abilities.
  • Robust - Maximize compatibility with current and future technology, including assistive technologies.

State of Nevada Efforts

In pursuit of these objectives, the Office of the CIO issued an All Agency Memo from the Office of the CIO 9/11/2018, delineating the steps and strategies for enhancing digital accessibility across the State's digital assets.

By adhering to these standards and legislative directives, the State of Nevada reaffirms its commitment to creating an inclusive digital environment, ensuring that all citizens have equitable access to information and services.
