Accessibility Statement

Purpose

We want everyone who visits the Nobnocket Boutique Inn website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding. Our accessibility statement will provide our current status regarding Web Content Accessibility and our physical location.

What are we doing?

To help us make the Nobnocket Boutique inn website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

In April 2019 we undertook various automated and manual audits to identify problem areas and improve on them. This included online audits with achecker.ca and wave.webaim.org, in-browser audits with Chrome Lighthouse Accessibility and axe, as well as manual testing using keyboard navigation. We used the results of these tests to remediate missing alt tags, add focus elements, improve color contrast, and strengthen keyboard accessibility. We also added the WP Accessibility plugin which allows visitors with vision problems to toggle text size and color contrast further.

How are we doing?

We’re working hard to achieve our goal of Level AA accessibility, but we realize there are some areas that still need improving.

Nobnocket Boutique Inn is in the process of facilitating the accessibility and usability of its website for all people with disabilities. We will be implementing over time the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 Level AA (WCAG 2.1 AA) as its web accessibility standard or other standards to the extent required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (‘ADA”).

Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing. If, at any time, you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage on www.nobnocket.com, please contact us at lux@nobnocket.com If you do encounter an accessibility issue, please be sure to specify the webpage in your email, and we will make all reasonable efforts to make that page accessible for you. You may also contact us via telephone at (508)696-0859. We will make every possible effort to answer your questions and concerns.
