Accessibility features

Strathcona County strives to make content on pages of this website accessible for all residents.

The website is built using flexible layouts that will adapt to small screens on mobile devices.

Our goal is to have pages conform to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).


Descriptive ALT tags are applied to images on this website. These tags provide descriptions of the images, which are read out loud by screen reader software to their users.


  • Maps: We are unable to provide text alternatives to complex maps. Instead, contact the phone or email information listed on the same web page the map is on.
  • Social media: Strathcona County utilizes third-party providers of social media channels (Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc.). These websites have their own standards not influenced by the County.
  • Videos: Not all videos on this website do not incorporate closed captions or audio description.
  • Historical or legacy content and applications: Content and applications developed before April 2014 will not conform to level A of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines due to resourcing constraints.
  • Third-party tools:  The County makes every effort to select third party tools that are built with accessibility in mind, however, you may run into instances of third-party tools that do not conform with WCAG guidelines.

Audio and video files

The speed of your Internet connection will determine how you access audio and video files.

Dial-up speed

Due to large file sizes, dial-up users should first download audio and video files before listening or viewing the file. Download files by:

  1. Click the audio or video link with your RIGHT mouse button.
  2. Select "save target as" (Internet Explorer) or "save link as" (Firefox).
  3. Choose a folder to store the file and click "Save."
  4. After downloading, click "Open" to view and print.
  5. You can also look at the file again at a later time because it has been stored in your computer. Just enter the folder where you downloaded and double click on the file.
