The LSP Board is committed to achieving meaningful accessibility to this online environment for all
users, including users with disabilities. We follow specific Commonwealth enterprise standards
designed to meet the needs of our citizens with disabilities. The Commonwealth enterprise standards
are generally based on standards used by the Federal government for technology accessibility for
people with disabilities, and web content accessibility guidelines developed by the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C). For more information about the Federal standards, please visit the Section 508
web site (http://www.section508.gov) or the Federal Access Board web site (http://www.access-board.gov).
For more information about the W3C guidelines, please visit their web site (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT).
The MassDEP web site is regularly tested using leading web accessibility technologies and reviewed by
users to verify that this web site is compliant with applicable standards.
About Portable Document Format (PDF)
Some documents on this web site are produced in Portable Document Format (PDF). Efforts are
currently underway to ensure that all files are produced using the latest version of Acrobat
(file conversion software for PDFs), which is the most accessible technology currently available
for these types of files. In order to improve viewing of these files, please download the latest
version of Adobe ReaderTM, which is available for free at the Adobe web site (http://www.adobe.com).
However, recognizing that even this version does not always work for all users, efforts are also
underway to ensure that PDF files are supplemented with alternative accessible formats and wherever
possible, that these formats include a text or an HTML file.
If any file format prevents you from accessing the information, please contact us for assistance. In order to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please note the nature of your accessibility concern, the format in which you prefer to receive the material, the web page address of the requested material, and the best way to contact you.
We also welcome your questions about this accessibility statement and comments on how to improve the site’s accessibility.
