Sapar Contemporary is committed to facilitating and improving the accessibility and usability of its Website. We strive to ensure that our Website services are accessible to persons with disabilities. To accomplish this, we work to assess and implement, over time, the relevant portions of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (“WCAG 2.0 AA”) as its web accessibility standard, which will also bring the Website into further conformance with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and the Section 508 Web Accessibility Standards developed by the United States Access Board. Our Website will be tested on a periodic basis to improve the Website’s accessibility. We are testing our site with the new versions of speech reading software.
Sapar Contemporary Accessibility team is lead by Dr. Levent who has worked on many national accessibility initiatives, conducted multiple focus groups with the members of the National Federation of the Blind, American Association of the Blind, and other local disability and Universal Design groups. Dr. Levent is an editor of Art Beyond Sight: A Resource Guide to Art and Visual Impairment; and a co-author of Speaking Out on Art & Museums: Study on the Needs and Preferences of Adults who are Blind or Have Low Vision.
Please be aware that our efforts to improve the Website’s accessibility and usability are ongoing. The writing of the descriptive image tags will be done over time. While we strive to make the Website as accessible as possible, our pages may not always pass online testing or validation tools. We are also working with users to test the actual experience of the website.
If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular Website, please contact us at email@example.com. If you do encounter an accessibility issue, please be sure to specify the web page and nature of the issue in your email, and we will make all reasonable efforts to make that page or the information contained therein accessible for you.
