ACCESSIBILITY STATEMENT

Vuzix is committed to maintaining and improving the accessibility of its website to ensure that persons with disabilities have full and equal enjoyment of our online goods and services. To help us in this mission, Vuzix’ website employs the Accessibly App to improve the usability and accessibility of the content on our website. 

CONFORMANCE STATUS

The Accessibly app uses the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defined requirements to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Accessibly App is following the best guidelines and is at least partially conformant with WCAG 2.0 level AA.

TECHNICAL INFORMATION

The Accessibly App is supported in Shopify and Wordpress environments. The app relies on the following technologies:

  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • NodeJS
  • MongoDB

ACCESSIBLY APP FEATURES

Through the use of the Accessibly App, the website can be adjusted with keyboard navigation using the “tab” key (WCAG 2.1/2.1.1). Additionally, below is a list of all provided Accessibly App features and tools for better website experience:

ZOOM | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.4

This feature enables users to enhance the size of the text to up to three times the original text for better text readability.

BIGGER CURSOR

Makes the cursor bigger and more prominent. Increases the size for better site browsing.

INVERT COLORS

Invert the colors of the website content. For those with decreased vision, the high contrast greatly helps to read the site better.

TWEAK CONTRAST | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6

This feature lets users manually select from two options: to enhance the contrast of the website or to decrease the contrast.

TWEAK BRIGHTNESS | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6

This feature lets users update the brightness on the site. The content can either be made brighter or darker.

GRAYSCALE | WCAG 2.1 / 1.4.6

Users can turn on grayscale, making the website content appear only in shades of gray. This benefits people with visual impairment.

READING LINE

Add a supportive reading line to the site.

READABLE FONTS

Convert the fonts available on-site to one of the most easily readable fonts: Helvetica.

ALT TEXT AND IMAGES

Ability to read alt text of images. As of now, the Accessibility App has added a feature where alt descriptions for images without them are generated using Google's Vision AI. 

TOOLTIPS | WCAG 2.1 / 2.5.3

Add labels to images that contain a written description of the image.

HIGHLIGHT LINKS

Highlight links to make them more prominent.
