Rack Room Shoes is committed to ensuring that its websites are accessible to the widest possible audience, including users with disabilities.
Policy update likely in 2018
The WCAG guidelines are in the process of being updated to version 2.1 and are scheduled to be published in 2018. We will review the policy in light of these changes as soon as a firm release date is made available. The primary focus for WCAG 2.1 is requirements for people with low vision and cognitive and learning disabilities as well as mobile accessibility.
The long-term goal and intention of this policy is to state clear accessibility principles that all Rack Room Shoes websites must follow.
Rack Room Shoes is in the process of ensuring all pages comply with the AA standard of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Rack Room Shoes acknowledges that this is a work in progress and, in order to ensure no user is disadvantaged while this work is carried out, Rack Room Shoes intends to respond to all requests for assistance with accessibility by either altering the necessary content as soon as possible. Websites shall provide appropriate channels of communication to allow visitors to request alternative formats and to give feedback about any accessibility issues.
This practice will continue after Rack Room Shoe’s web pages are deemed AA compliant in order to meet specific individual needs that cannot be met by mainstream adjustments and to ensure that required adjustments to our web pages are made to maximize their accessibility to disabled users.
For the purpose of this policy, the term “websites” includes:
All websites (public and non authenticated) managed and maintained by Rack Room Shoes staff or on the behalf of Rack Room Shoes, including, without limitation, all external websites using rackroomshoes.com domain or any subdomain.
All material associated with pages of the website such as documents, audio, video and any other additional files.
Rack Room Shoes will adhere to the following principles in relation to its websites: The websites shall provide appropriate channels of communication for feedback about accessibility. The websites shall meet level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.0 as standard.
