Web Design Accessibility

The City and Borough of Juneau has redesigned its website to incorporate Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). This change makes our pages more accessible to "text-based" readers and screen readers. Using style sheets, we can offer a logically-arranged, text-based alternative for our users without the necessity of a separate "text only" site.

For more information on Cascading Style Sheets and their advantages, click [here].

Accessibility Tools for Adobe PDF Documents

A version of the Adobe Reader download page that is accessible to screen readers is available. To go to the accessible Acrobat Reader download page, click [here].

Adobe has developed a number of ways to make PDF files accessible to those using screen readers. For more information, please visit Adobe's Accessibility Tools page [here].

If you are unable to use these accessibility tools for any reason and need a text-only copy of a PDF file posted on this site, please send an email to the webmaster (click [here] for email form) including an exact description of the file you need and the URL of the page that links to it. We will return a text-only copy of the file to you by email as soon as possible.

These accessibility tools will only function for PDFs created directly from electronic files. PDFs created by scanning a printed document cannot be converted to text. Access to scanned PDFs is accomplished by printing the document and then using a document reader such as Arkenstone or Kurzweil to read the document aloud. An Arkenstone reader is available at the Juneau Public Library (downtown branch).
