WEBSITE ACCESSIBILITY POLICY

The Eighteenth Judicial Circuit is committed to making its web site accessible to all users, and we are committed to the inclusion of several features designed to improve accessibility for users with disabilities. Some of these features are described below.

Images on the site will contain ‘alt tags’ with descriptions of the image, which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site.

Administrative Orders, Forms and other special publications that are made available on the web site are generally available in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). When posting PDF files, we will make every effort to follow the guidelines on “How to Create Accessible Adobe PDF Files“.

Fonts are set to be relative and adjustable by web browsers so that they can be changed to accommodate different needs.

To improve the accessibility of this web site, we will test the pages with screen readers and other web tools. The results of these reviews will be incorporated into the website. Seminole County welcomes comments on how to improve the site’s accessibility for users with disabilities.

Florida Courts Help available at the touch of a screen:

For constituents, customers, or callers seeking help with family law cases – divorce, adoption, name change, custody, order of protection, and much more – there is now a one-stop source for lots of information aimed at self-represented people.
