Website and Technology Accessibility Statement
Briggs & Riley values inclusion, equality and accessibility for all, which is why we strive to ensure our website is accessible to all people, regardless of abilities.
We will continue our efforts to improve the accessibility of our website, however, if you have specific questions, concerns, or feedback about the accessibility of our website, or if you are having difficulty or need assistance using our website, please contact us.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.
WCAG 2.0 and its successor, WCAG 2.1, are consistently identified and upheld as providing an acceptable level of accessibility, cited by plaintiffs and in rulings. This means that while the ADA doesn't yet specify WCAG as a formal standard under the law, the courts are upholding that compliance with WCAG provides reasonable accessibility.
Briggs & Riley is currently partially compliant with WCAG 2.1 Level AA. This means that some parts of the website do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
Accessibility assessment approach
Briggs & Riley assess the accessibility of the Briggs & Riley website periodically by means of external evaluations.
This means that an independent third party has evaluated the website against the WCAG 2.1 guidelines and reported on their findings. This was done using both automated and extensive manual testing, including testing with assistive technologies, to ensure excellent coverage.
Briggs & Riley is determined to try and remediate the findings from these evaluations, as to improve the accessibility of the Briggs & Riley website.
The most recent evaluation of the Briggs & Riley website took place in Q4 2022.
