The City of Bakersfield maintains its website to allow general accessibility using standards set forth in Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C).
Images on the site contain 'alt tags' with descriptions of the image that aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader rather than reading the site.
Major reports and other special publications are made available on the City's Web site are generally available in html. However, in many cases we publish a document using Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). For details on how PDF files can be translated to text for screen readers, visit Access Adobe.
While we are committed to making our Website accessible to any and all users, we recognize that not all pages may be ADA compliant at this time. We welcome comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities.
If you use assistive technology and the format of any material on our website interferes with your ability to access the information please contact the webmaster.
