Website Accessibility

The National Postal Museum wants its Web site to be accessible to the widest possible audience. We make every effort to be compliant with the United States Access Board Section 508 Refresh Standards including the Web Accessibility Initiative’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). At present, this website:

  • has descriptive text equivalents for all images and graphics
  • can be successfully read with screen readers
  • can be read and navigated with text-only browsers.



If you wish to change the size of the text, the font, or the background colors and/or graphics, some Web browsers have controls that will allow these adjustments. Please see the Help menu on your browser for instructions.
