The Hawaii Tourism Authority has worked to ensure that the information in this site is accessible and that people with a wide range of abilities can explore and benefit from its content.
For that reason, the site has been designed and programmed with assistive technologies in mind and for compatibility with a wide variety of browsers, conforming to W3C's Level A Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0:
Note that while we hope that any third-party sites linked to from MeetHawaii.com meet these standards, we cannot make that guarantee.
While Level A provisions are helpful to a wide audience, one of our top priorities is to achieve W3C's Double-A accessibility standards. As we work towards that objective, we ask that you help us by sharing your experiences with this site and suggesting ways we might improve and facilitate access to an audience of even greater diversity.
In 1998, the U.S. Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology accessible to people with disabilities.
Section 508 was enacted to eliminate barriers in information technology, to make available new opportunities for people with disabilities and to encourage development of technologies that would help achieve these goals.
