Accessibility Goals

The City of Lodi is committed to providing services that are accessible for everyone. We continually update our website and review it for compliance with the following accessibility goals:

  • HTML4.01 Strict Validation or XHTML1.0 Transitional Validation
  • Section 508 compliance
  • Structured semantic markup
  • Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Priority 1 compliance

Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)

The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) commitment to lead the Web to its full potential includes promoting a high degree of usability for people with disabilities.

Web Accessibility Initiative, in coordination with organizations around the world, pursues accessibility of the Web through five primary areas of work: technology, guidelines, tools, education and outreach, and research and development.

The City of Lodi has made efforts to conform to W3C Recommendations and other standards. We welcome any ideas or comments that help us improve the accessibility and usability of our website.

Free tools from the Adobe Corporation and Microsoft are available to assist visually impaired users who may have difficulty accessing this information.
