Site Accessibility

On This Page

This page explains that Lainey Feingold’s website has been designed so everyone can use it. The website was designed to meet standards that help ensure the site is accessible.  Those standards are called the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, or WCAG.  This site was designed to meet the highest WCAG level, known as AAA.  Before the site was launched it was also tested by blind users. If you have any problems with this website, please contact the Law Office of Lainey Feingold.

This page is the Accessibility Statement for The Law Office of Lainey Feingold’s website.

This site is designed to be accessible to and usable by people with and without disabilities. Please contact us if you encounter an accessibility or usability issue on this site.

With one exception, all pages on this site have been designed and generated to conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.2, Level AAA. These guidelines are issued by the Web Accessibility Initiative of the World Wide Web Consortium.

The one exception is that not all pages meet WCAG 2.2 Success Criteria 3.1.5 (a AAA Reading Level requirement). As often as possible, each page or article includes a summary on the top of the page as an alternative to the Reading Level requirement.

Read about the value of these summaries and why Lainey moved them to the top of the articles in 2020.

This website was launched in March, 2016. Prior to launch it was tested by a cross section of blind and visually impaired users. At that time it met the requirements of WCAG 2.0 AAA. It was built in WordPress using one of the “WordPress accessibility ready themes” known as Toivo. An earlier version of this website was included in the official report that was part of the implementation of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 in 2008.

In 2018 this site was upgraded to meet the 2018 WCAG 2.1 AAA standards. The site was included in the implementation report that was part of the WCAG 2.1 adoption process. Read more about WCAG 2.1 and’s involvement.

The site was upgraded again when WCAG was updated in 2023. The site now meets WCAG 2.2 AAA standards. As with previous WCAG updates, this site was included in the Implementation Report for WCAG 2.2.

Thank you WordPress community for caring about accessibility and offering website templates that produce content that works for everyone. Finding a developer / designer who understands usability and accessibility is critical to the end result. Signing a contract for a new or upgraded website? Be sure it includes accessibility and usability testing by disabled users. Thank you to Natalie MacLees of Digita11y for building this site, making the WCAG 2.2 updates, and for lots of help in other ways.

This web site provides links to sites created and maintained by other people and organizations. The Law Office of Lainey Feingold cannot assure that these other sites meet applicable accessibility standards.

Every organization should have an Accessibility Statement. More and more of them do.
