Easton Porter Group + Zero George believes that the web should be open to all, regardless of sex, color, creed, or ability. That’s why this website is built to conform to the web content accessibility guidelines set out in the WCAG 2.0 + 2.1 for the purpose of making this website accessible to everyone regardless of any disability. It is designed and built to work with assistive devices and applications like JAWS and VoiceOver.

1. Certification

There is no formal certification process or entity that recognizes the accessibility of websites. Those that conform to the recommendations of WCAG 2.0 + 2.1 (web content accessibility guidelines) do so as a commitment to accessibility and adhere to universally accepted standards around these principles. It does not represent a review or validation of conformance by W3C or WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative). Rather it is meant to promote accessibility on the web and indicate a claim of conformance to a specified level of WCAG.

This website was also built to comply with the most current rules of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), Title III, administered by the Department of Justice in the United States.

2. Testing

Testing for the website is conducted with a combination of manual testing and the use of the following tools: Wave by Webaim, Koa11y, and browser color contrast checkers to ensure compliance is met in the WCAG level A or AA. Items found are flagged and passed onto a team of digital strategists, developers and editors based on the issue (be it content or a functional area of concern) to be corrected.

3. Execution

We rely on a proprietary methodology and development framework that delivers a Level A or AA compliance for WCAG 2.0 and 2.1. Alongside resources that are provided at the beginning of our audit process, we conduct regular checks to ensure that content updates and edits continue to the desired level of accessibility and reflects changes adopted by the WCAG.

4. Feedback

We encourage feedback from users on how we can further improve accessibility to our website. If you have an impairment necessitating an accommodation or you wish to discuss how we can improve accessibility on this website, please email us at concierge@zerogeorge.com.

5. Third Party Sites

Third parties like Facebook are not covered by this statement as we do not manage accessibility in those places. This includes any embedded item, iFrames, or API’s. Accessibility policies or terms of use for common third parties can be found below.

6. Entrances

The public entrance to the hotel is mobility accessible and check-in/ registration is available in the courtyard at the entrance. The route to the ADA-accessible guest rooms is also mobility accessible, including a door at least 32” wide and TVs with closed captioning.  Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of our buildings built in 1804, which are part of the national historic registry, the route to the restaurant is not mobility accessible. The hotel does not have TTY for guest use.
