The Local is committed to providing a website that is accessible to a wide audience. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and, in doing so, adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
This website strives to conform to Level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1).
