ADA Accessibility Statement

Link to CMS Section Admin ADA Accessibility Statement           (CMS Sec 51)   .

 ADA Accessibility Statement added Dec. 15, 2019. Read below for more.

The red tab on the bottom-left of the page opens an ADA window with tools for those with disability.  Be sure to check it out.  The ADA code seems to add a bit of overhead, making pages load slower and negatively impacting our SEO display scores.  We're going to create our own code that does the same function but is 80% more efficient.  All ADA compliance is relatively new to the web, yet those not paying attention (especially in the public sector) are at risk of litigation (getting sued or fined by the government).

Update:  Further study of ADA indicators shows that there are more than 300 measures of Accessibility isues on web pages.  The HWR site addresses 25 of the major categories (which include many more within each category.) 


It is our goal to serve those visitors to our website who have disabilites defined by the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990. New federal guidelines for websites are beginning to be formulated, such as the 2018 "The Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations." Below is the Hamilton West Robotics ADA Accessibility Statement.

On certain test pages of our website, we have added a ADA ASSIST Widget to allow text to speech (TTT), dark mode, inverted mode, and a zoom/enlarge feature. On the bottom of these pages, just click on the red tab, and then toggle each to on or off as you wish. The widget is on this page.
