What may work well for one person, may cause difficulties for another person. Dr. Ourian™ has made efforts to accommodate as many of his clients and potential clients as is reasonable given his professional corporation’s size, resources, and knowledge of his clients, and potential client’s needs. To that end, Dr. Ourian™ has engaged the services of professionals to assist and advise him in these matters.

SOME SPECIFIC ACCESSIBILITY FEATURES WITHIN DR OURIAN™’S WEBSITE
Dr. Ourian™’s website contains a third-party software plugin, also known as a “widget”, called EqualWeb. This widget (“EqualWeb”), is powered by this third party’s dedicated accessibility server. Use of EqualWeb’s widget can improve website access for some users, particularly related to certain types of disabilities. EqualWeb has stated that its application makes efforts to follow to some degree the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). On Dr. Ourian™’s website, the EqualWeb widget’s accessibility icon is usually located in the LOWER LEFT CORNER of most desktop pages (when viewed on a desktop) and in the RIGHT LOWER CORNER of most mobile phone pages (when viewed on a mobile phone).
ENABLING THE ACCESSIBILITY MENU
The accessibility menu can be enabled by clicking the accessibility menu icon that appears after clicking on the accessibility widget described above. After triggering the accessibility menu, please wait a moment for the accessibility menu to load in its entirety.
We anticipate that from time to time, within our resources, we will be making modifications to parts of our website, and possibly modifications to accessibility of our website. Reasonable efforts toward improving seamless, accessible, and unhindered use of websites by clients and potential clients is generally a worthwhile goal. Moving closer to this goal will often depend on the knowledge the professional corporation has regarding any particular difficulties those using the website might encounter, as well as available resources and improvements with technology.
Despite the efforts we may have made regarding accessibility, consistent with normal business practices for a professional corporation of our size and resources, some content, features, processes, or policies, may be improved, so we welcome your suggestions.
THIRD PARTY APPLICATIONS

Since we do not have control over the structure of these advertisements and plugins and are unable to modify them at all or to the extent that would accommodate every user of our website, and are not responsible for those elements which we do not control. Our website uses, or may use, some java scripts that may “appear” to a user or screen reader to lack alt text, links, or form labels.

Our website has some video and audio elements. Each video and/or audio will either have close captioning or text equivalent located next to the video or audio element.
