ADA Compliance Policy

Workhouse NYC is committed to ensuring that this Web site is accessible to everyone. To help us make Workhouse NYC’s website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

We are actively striving to improve the experience for all visitors. If for any reason you cannot access any of the material on our Web site, please contact us and we will work to resolve the problem.

Standards compliance

  • All Web pages use HTML 5
  • All pages use structured semantic markup. For instance, each page contains one Header 1 Level Tag, and any appropriate sub-level heading tags. All paragraphs are properly coded with paragraph tags.


  • Wherever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. 
  • Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article).
  • Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.
  • If link text is duplicated; eg. “Read more” links, then “title” text is used to distinguish them.

Images / Photos

  • All content images used on this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include empty ALT attributes.

Visual Design

  • This site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout. Content is independent of CSS.
  • Users may disable CSS or use their own style sheets.
  • Where possible color brightness and illuminosity meet WCAG level 2.1 standards.
