The design of this web site complies with the U.S. government Section 508 accessibility guidelines and the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, Level 1, to ensure that websites are accessible to people with disabilities.

Each page of this site begins with a link that enables you to skip past the navigation links directly to the content of the page. The link is only visible text-only access or a screen reader for the visually impaired. This may help reduce typing to select links within the page, and for those with speech-based browsers it can reduce the amount of repetitive text.
All graphics on this site are marked with text labels for access by screen readers. Images have alternative text called ALT, descriptions that can be read when images are not being displayed.
The CREW is strongly committed to a principle of convenient access for everyone. We welcome your feedback to continue improving the accessibility of the CREW. Please Contact us with any suggestions.
