We strive to maintain a website that is as technologically accessible and consistent with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 as possible. As the guidelines are promulgated by the World Wide Web Consortium, we will strive to update and/or otherwise amend from time to time.
We recognize that usability may not function perfectly in every area of the website. We have conducted and continue to conduct ongoing accessibility reviews of our website and remediation of any functionality issues. Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing.
If, at any time, you have difficulty using this website, or with a particular web page or function on this site, please contact us by phone (850) 872-4473, or email Bay.County@sa14.fl.gov and we will make efforts to assist you.
If you have found an inaccessible area on the site, please be sure to specify the Web page and provide us with any other information you may think will help us locate the area. We will strive to make that page accessible, and if a page cannot be made accessible we will work to make a text version available. If you have a need for a specific electronic format, please contact us by sending an email to Bay.County@sa14.fl.gov. Please provide the format that you require the content to be in, the web page address of the material, and your contact information.
We welcome your questions about this accessibility statement and comments on how to improve the website’s accessibility.
Please see the link below for Frequently Asked Questions about Service Animals and the ADA written by the Department of Justice.
Also included is the link to the Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Service Dog information can be found in Subpart B, section 35.136.
Because support animals have not been trained to perform a specific job or task, they do not qualify as service animals under the ADA. Support animals and therapy dogs (excluding the dogs attached to the AOC Therapy Dog Program) are not permitted in the Courthouse and any other Court Spaces.
