Access and inclusion are at the heart of our game and at the core of our organization. Digital accessibility is the process and practice of ensuring all visitors can access and engage with content, media and experiences while using the web.
The National Beep Baseball Association takes great strides to ensure its digital assets are accessible. When developing websites, documents or other media, we adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (AA) standard, which offers an equitable browsing experience for users of all abilities.
Our web and media teams verify the accessibility of materials before publishing to this website. If for some reason you find something that is not accessible, please submit feedback to the NBBA web team so we can take a look.
Headings are used to denote prominent sections within the pages of this website. The page title is always given the heading level 1, which can typically be accessed by pressing the number “1” on your keyboard while using a screen reading application (like JAWS or NVDA.) Sections within the page use headings 2, 3 and 4, with headings level 3 and 4 being used as sub-headings within content sections.
We’ve use skip navigation links to support a faster browsing experience for keyboard users and those wanting to bypass redundant information (like the header and navigation menu.)
All images on the NBBA website should have appropriate image descriptions to describe the intent or relevant visuals shown in the graphic.
ARIA has been used to enhance the screen reading experience for blind or visually impaired users. Landmarks have been added to the header, navigation, main content and footer sections. ARIA roles have also been applied to tabs and other toggles used across the site.
We’ve worked with design elements across the site to ensure they meet or exceed the WCAG 2.0 AA standard for a 4.5:1 contrast ratio to support users with low vision.
