The City of Oakland Park is actively committed to providing a website that is accessible to the broadest possible audience. It has been designed with Section 508 regulations (Federal laws regarding electronic content accessibility), and Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) in mind, which are the industry standards for optimal usability by all web visitors.
OaklandParkfl.gov is equipped with the AudioEye Toolbar (see blue circle icon located in the bottom-right corner of the window). The AudioEye Toolbar provides tools that benefit all site visitors with diverse abilities. Each assistive utility made available from the toolbar may be engaged individually or combined with one another.
If you use assistive technology (such as a Braille reader, or a screen reader) and the format of any material on this website interferes with your ability to access information, please contact us. To enable us to respond in a manner most helpful to you, please indicate the nature of your accessibility problem, the preferred format in which to receive the material, the web address of the requested material, and your contact information.
Continued Improvements in the Works
A large block of historical PDF documents is scheduled for an upgrade into an accessible format. They were converted for web use before accessible functionality was available. Contact information is displayed to enable further assistance on pages that contain these documents. The upgrade of these documents is an ongoing project. Documents will be updated gradually and upon completion, the community will be notified.
