Translation Feature on Website. Click on the red “Translate” icon in the lower left-hand corner of any page on this website and you’ll see images of country flags symbolizing languages into which this website can be translated. This feature was added in January 2020 in order to make our website more accessible. Note: The language translation feature no longer works when using Internet Explorer as of Fall 2020. (The end-of-support date for that Internet browser is August 17, 2021.)
Resizing Text on Websites. All modern browsers (Firefox, Safari, Google Chrome, and Internet Explorer) provide temporary and permanent setting options to adjust the text size as well as your font type. Once permanently set, your preference of font and text size will be the default options for all websites you visit. This is much more useful than looking for text resizing settings on each individual website that you visit. In most browsers, you can easily change the text size by zooming in and out with either your keyboard or the keyboard and a scroll wheel mouse.
- Zoom in – Hold down the Control (Ctrl) or Command (⌘) key and the plus (+) key. If using a scroll wheel mouse, scroll while holding the Control or Command key down.
- Zoom out – Hold down the Control (Ctrl) or Command (⌘) key and the minus (-) key. If using a scroll wheel mouse, scroll while holding the Control or Command key down.
- Zoom Reset – To change your zoom level back to the original setting, Hold down the Control (Ctrl) or Command (⌘) key and the zero (0).

People-First Language. People-first language is used to communicate appropriately and respectfully with and about an individual with a disability. People-first language emphasizes the person first, not the disability. For example, when referring to a person with a disability, refer to the person first, by using phrases such as, “a person who …”, “a person with …” or, “person who has …” Click here to obtain a poster containing more information.
