Our commitment

We’re committed to building a robust, inclusive, and accessible platform for all audiences. We strive to meet level AA standards from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.

Right now, our sites meet the majority of the standards and are substantially compliant with the AA standards. We’re working to bridge any remaining gaps by updating the platform and partnering with content creators to ensure stories are accessible. There’s more for us to do, and we’ll continue updating this page as we make improvements.

Future improvements

Here are a few things we’re hoping to update in the coming months:

  • Site navigation
  • Contact forms
  • Some elements are not in the order you’d expect when using a keyboard to navigate
  • Embeds and third-party content need accessible names
  • Text spacing could be improved for legibility

Along with these improvements, we’re continuing to work with content creators to ensure that new stories are accessible to people with disabilities. This includes adding:

  • Alternative text for content images
  • Captions for videos
  • Transcripts for podcasts and audio files
  • Text descriptions for ads
  • Options to reduce motion in ads and interactive stories

If you have any feedback or questions about accessibility, we’d love to hear from you: Please include details about the site you’re trying to access and the kind of assistive technology you’re using (e.g., VoiceOver on iOS).
