About Us


About CHCOC.gov Accessibility

We are committed to making all our Internet documents accessible to everyone. To ensure that we meet or exceed the requirements of the 1998 Amendment to Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, we continually review our site and modify pages to remove accessibility problems for people with disabilities.

Documents on our site are in many formats. Many are in ASCII or HTML format, accessible to people who use screen reading software and to those with other vision or mobility impairments. Generally, we use Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) to create pages and documents that are accessible to that segment of our customer base. In creating HTML documents, we follow Section 508 standards; for example, we include alternate text to describe graphics. Currently, our website contains documents in Adobe Acrobat PDF file format. Most PDF files will be accessible to those who use assistive technology such as screen readers. Some legacy or software created PDF files may not be accessible.

Accessibility Aids: File Viewers

All applets, plug-ins, or other applications required by OPM webpages that are not included on the specific page are found as links from this page. OPM does not endorse any of these products; they are listed below for the convenience of our visitors. Address questions about the plug-in or file viewer to the respective vendor.

Adobe Reader

Use Adobe Acrobat to read Portable Document Format (PDF) files.

Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint

Microsoft offers file viewer and converter programs to enable those without Word, Excel, and PowerPoint programs to open and view these types of files.
