ATF is committed to and is making every possible effort to ensure that all electronic and information technology developed, procured, maintained, or used by ATF is accessible to people with disabilities, including both our employees and the customers we serve. This commitment to accessibility for all begins with this site and our efforts to ensure all functionality and all content is accessible to all Americans.
Images on the site contain ‘alt tags,’ which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Likewise, ‘skip to’ links provide these users with a method for bypassing the header and going directly to the main content each time a page is accessed. Text transcripts accompany audio clips of speeches and remarks, and closed captioning is available on videos.
Although the new ATF.gov is still in its initial stages, we are constantly updating our site in an attempt to make it as accessible as possible. To improve the accessibility of ATF.gov, the Bureau has reviewed the site’s accessibility with outside web tools. The results of these reviews have been incorporated into the website. ATF welcomes comments on how to improve the site’s accessibility for users with disabilities.
