The Department web site has features that are intended to make the experience of interacting with the Web site positive and productive for all users.

Text size can also be increased with the Web browser’s text size adjustment feature. For more information about text size adjustments within a specific browser type and version, site visitors should consult their browser documentation.

Some users can see better using high-contrast reverse types, such as white on black or different colors. Site visitors should consult their browser documentation for more information.
