Web Accessibility

Last Updated: March 7, 2019
Gelson’s Markets is committed to inclusion and community. This core principle comes through in the experiences we design for our website. Gelson’s Markets develops its website to follow the design and accessibility principles embodied in the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Gelson’s Markets reaches beyond compliance to provide keyboard navigation and page structure for assistive technology such as screen readers.

Among its web accessibility efforts, Gelson’s Markets has a robust testing regimen for accessibility. Gelson’s Markets regularly tests its site with real people including those with disabilities that rely on assistive technology. Gelson’s Markets has also commissioned third party consultants specialized in developing accessible online experiences to evaluate its website. Gelson’s Markets maintains a dashboard, managing accessibility.

If you experience any problem accessing this website while using adaptive technologies such as a screen reader, or want to provide feedback on our website, we also maintain an online point of contact for accessibility, accessibility@gelsons.com.

Accessibility features include, but are not limited to:

• Supports full keyboard navigation, following established UI patterns such as Enter or Space for activating buttons, or ESC key to close dialogs.
• Hierarchical heading structure to give page organization to assistive technology.
• Skip to main content links which set focus to target region.
• Leverage ARIA to provide descriptive website markup for assistive technology, which must organize and contextualize website elements.
• Alert screen readers to dynamic changes such as adding an item to one’s deli order.
• Association of form with labels, alternative text for images, and color contrast that supports all users including those with RGB blindness.
