At The Briggs Companies, we believe in creating an inclusive digital environment where everyone can access the information and services they need with ease. Our commitment to web accessibility ensures that individuals with disabilities can experience our website fully and independently. We strive to adhere to the best practices and standards to make our website more accessible and user-friendly for all. Using best practices and industry standards, we aim to provide an accessible website for all users. Maintaining accessibility is an ongoing process. Our web content changes often, so some content may be a work in progress towards meeting our web accessibility goals.

How Can We Help You?

Increase text size

Most web browsers allow you to increase or decrease text size by holding down the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and pressing the + (plus) key or – (minus) key.

  • Ctrl+ = increase text size
  • Ctrl- = decrease text size


Increase the volume

The volume is often controlled with a keyboard by pressing the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) while pressing the F11 or F12 key:

  • Ctrl F12 = increase volume
  • Ctrl F11 = decrease volume

Make the mouse pointer more visible

The mouse pointer is sometimes difficult to see.

The size and color of the mouse pointer on the screen can be adjusted to make it easier to identify and locate. Most operating systems also provide options to show a trail when the mouse pointer moves around the screen. They may also highlight the mouse pointer when a specific key (such as the Ctrl key) is pressed.

Use the keyboard instead of a mouse

Click the tab key on any page to traverse the links. The website is designed to be navigable by keyboard alone, for users who cannot use a mouse.

If these controls do not work for you, try upgrading to the latest version of your browser or visit Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C) site for additional instructions. To magnify specific parts of your screen, try a tool such as Windows Magnifier.

Use these common keyboard commands to navigate web pages without a mouse. (Note that these may not work with every Internet browser.)

Common Keyboard Commands

  • Move forward from link to link or to controls = Select Tab
  • Move backward from link to link or to controls = Shift + Tab
  • Select buttons = Spacebar
  • Navigate and select Radio Buttons = Arrow
  • Select/deselect boxes = Spacebar
  • Move from box to box = Tab
  • Open a List Box = ALT + Down arrow
  • Read the prior screen = CTRL + Page Up
  • Read the next screen = CTRL + Page Down
  • Go to the top of the page = CTRL + Home
  • Go to the bottom of the page = CTRL + End
  • Close the current window (for Internet Explorer) = CTRL + W
  • Refresh the screen = F5
  • Go back a page = ALT + Left Arrow
  • Go forward a page = ALT + Right Arrow
  • Navigate to & select the text in the address combo box = ALT + D


Change background and text colors

Some website users have difficulty reading text on a web page because of the use of color contrast on a page for the background or text colors. Many browsers provide a way to adjust the aspects of font and color. (see examples below)

  • Windows Menu Items: Tools > Options
  • Mac Menu Items: System Settings > Accessibility > Display

Using transcripts & captioning


A transcript is the text equivalent of information that is provided in an audio version. This includes both spoken words and non-spoken sounds (such as sound effects).


A caption displays the transcript for the audio portion of a video presentation that displays as the video is playing. Captions are text that is superimposed over the video to allow people who are deaf, hard of hearing, or who cannot hear the audio (such as those in a crowded room) to be able to visually read the message while the video is playing.

To view captioning on a video

  • Click the link to start the video playing.
  • Click on the Closed Captioning (CC) button to activate the captioning feature.
