We are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to everyone. If you have an accessibility-related question or comment, or if you are having difficulty accessing information on this website, please contact us so that we can provide you with the information you need through alternative means.

Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make your browsing experience more accessible.
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience:


  • Use your computer to read web pages out loud

  • Use the keyboard to navigate screens

  • Increase text size

  • Magnify your screen

  • Change background and text colors

  • Make your mouse pointer more visible (Windows only)

If you are looking for alternatives to your mouse and keyboard, speech recognition software such as "Dragon NaturallySpeaking" may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls.

If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.

​​​​​​Closed Captioning

Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf or hard of hearing as well as anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our video content includes captions, which you can learn how to turn on and off by visiting YouTube.

Volume Controls

Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has built-in volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s and your media player's volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
