Guyana Power & Light Incorporated recognizes that our customers have diverse abilities that create a variety of technology access needs. Thus we are committed to providing a website and web applications that are accessible and usable by the widest possible audience. In launching our new website, our goal is inclusion. We expect that all of our customers - regardless of disability and using a wide range of assistive technologies - will be able to get the information they need and perform the interactions necessary to manage their relationship with our company.
You can access GPL Inc. via a browser installed on a PC, Mac, or Linux computer. To access GPL Inc. via a browser installed on a mobile device, make sure your mobile browser meets these minimum requirements.
To get the latest GPL Inc. features, use a supported browser
In general, GPL Inc. supports the current and prior major release of Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Safari. If you use a browser other than those listed below you may not get the optimum view of the site.
There are two exceptions:
Internet Explorer (IE 9 and below do not render our gradient correctly.
Opera renders content larger than they actually are thus some items are skewed
To achieve the highest level of accessibility across platforms, browsers, and assistive technology devices, GPL Inc. adheres to most of the web accessibility standard developed by the W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). We have designed the site to meet the most widely followed global standard – the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Level AA, which became the ISO standard for accessibility in October of 2012. Additionally, GPL Inc. has implemented WAI-ARIA to provide accessibility for dynamic web interactions.
Innovative Accessibility Features
GPL Inc. has implemented accessibility features in ways that are not yet common and so we want to make customers aware of them. What follows is an explanation of are some of the helpful features of the new GPL Inc. web site:
- Layered mechanisms to skip to content of interest and bypass repetitive content.
- Semantically structured content to aid in finding and using the specific information you need.
- Moving carousels (e.g. Our Slideshow)that pause by default when the user focuses upon them – either using a mouse or keyboard focus. The carousel scroll movement will not resume until focus moves on. To permanently stop the scrolling content, select one of the options.
GPL Inc. has implemented some features for which the accessibility relies on external software applications and is therefore not perfect. For example, the user has to download adobe reader in order to view some pages.
The new GPL Inc's website does not display perfectly or as intended on all mobile browsers and devices with very low resolution. To complement this limitation we a mobile version of our site with essential services will be launched in the very near future.
