Making our website accessible for you!
St. Joseph’s Health Centre’s website was designed to be accessible to the widest possible audience. As we have taken great care to ensure our site confirms to web accessibility standards defined by the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA), we have also employed additional features aimed at further enhancing users’ experiences, such as font size control buttons, language preferences, print friendly features and responsive content that displays information according to how the site is being viewed (e.g. mobile phone versus desktop computer). Our site is also fully compatible with popular screen reading software.

Most images on our website have alternative text attributes, also known as alt text. When an image is used on a web page to convey information, its content is also described in text so it can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers.
People who do not use screen readers can also see the alt text when you move your mouse cursor over an image on our website.
We have not used alternative text attributes (alt text) for images on our website that are only decorative or part of the overall website design.
