The Phillyfunguide is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. 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.
The Phillyfunguide is a great resource for finding great events around and outside the city. However, prior to our upgrade, we did not do a great job of informing you the accessibility of the events’ themselves. Below you will find an accessibility icon guide. These icons will be located on the Phillyfunguide event listings.
This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people. We’re working to make sure we’re using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS.
While the Phillyfunguide strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. For example, the alt tags attached to our images are created by users of the site and therefore might not be available in all cases (especially on older events). Additionally, we’re still working on making some parts of the website (especially the editorials) more mobile friendly.
The Phillyfunguide now includes an icon guide to let you know what accessibility features each event offers. See our reference guide below for what each icon represents:
American Sign Language Interpreting
Assistive Listening Systems
