Bay Area Self Storage is Committed to Accessibility
Bay Area Self Storage is committed to ensuring accessibility for people with disabilities, including through our website and digital technologies. We recognize and support the Americans with Disabilities Act, 12 U.S.C. §12101 et seq. (ADA), and the various state laws that support accessibility. We understand our obligation to provide “effective communication” under the ADA with our customers and that this obligation includes our company and our website.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. WCAG defines three levels (A, AA, and AAA) of accessibility. Bay Area Self Storage is committed to becoming conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA—the most commonly used standard by governments worldwide for achieving website accessibility— in all areas of our web site but not all areas of our website may be fully remediated today. If you encounter any barriers as we transition towards making our web content accessible, please use the resources in “Access to Goods and Services” below.
Existing Web Content
We have reviewed our existing site and identified areas for improvement using common assistive technologies (e.g. JAWS, NVDA, etc.) on popular operating systems (e.g. Windows 10, MacOS 10.14, etc). We have begun with our most important web pages and expect to complete this effort by the end of 2020.
New Web Content
Bay Area Self Storage will ensure that all new and future web content fully meets WCAG 2.0 level AA. To this end, we will ensure that all designers and developers are properly trained in accessibility and that all content is thoroughly tested. In addition, we will require WCAG 2.0 level AA conformance in all contracts with third-party content providers.
