Transamerica is committed to providing a website that is accessible to its customers and visitors.
We aim to comply with Level AA of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We are continually making improvements to meet these guidelines, and our website has been designed with accessibility guidelines in mind.
Features that should increase our site’s accessibility include the following:
This is text that appears when images either can’t load or the user cannot see them (i.e., when using a screen reader). This text serves to describe the image.
We try to restrict our color to decorative purposes, and do not relay information exclusively through color. Nonetheless, if you choose, you can use your web browser options to choose your own colors. How you do this will depend on which browser you are using:
Many of the documents on this site are in PDF format. If you do not already have a screen reader on your computer that allows you to open these documents, there are several free versions available on line. The most common one is Adobe Acrobat Reader, available free on the Adobe website. Adobe also offers a free online tool for converting PDF documents to HTML or text.
If you would like more information about PDF accessibility, see the Adobe website accessibility section. For more help with Acrobat files generally and a link to download Acrobat Reader see the site help page.
In most browsers, you can easily increase of decrease the size of the text. How you do this will depend on what kind of computer you have.
|Bigger text||CTRL + +|
|Smaller text||CTRL + -|
|Reset size||CTRL + 0|
|Bigger text||CMD + +|
|Smaller text||CMD + -|
|Reset size||CMD + 0|
An alternative to changing the font size, as described above, is to change the resolution of the entire screen. Again, the process will depend on which sort of computer you are using:
While we strive to adhere to accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, there are still some areas of the website that we hope to improve.
