"Accessibility - Vox Media"


This site runs on Chorus, a modern publishing platform by Vox Media. If you have any trouble browsing the site or accessing the content, please email us at accessibility@voxmedia.com.

Our commitment

We’re committed to building a robust, inclusive, and accessible platform for all audiences. We strive to meet level AA standards from the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1.

Right now, our sites meet the majority of the standards and are substantially compliant with the AA standards. We’re working to bridge any remaining gaps by updating the platform and partnering with content creators to ensure stories are accessible. There’s more for us to do, and we’ll continue updating this page as we make improvements.

Site features

While each Chorus site looks visually different, our goal is to give everyone the same levels of access and ease of use.

Along with testing in modern browsers, we use VoiceOver in Chrome and Safari to review our sites.
