Our Commitment to Accessibility

Phillip J. Pirages Fine Books and Manuscripts is committed to making our website's content accessible and user friendly to everyone. If you are having difficulty viewing or navigating the content on this website, or notice any content, feature, or functionality that you believe is not fully accessible to people with disabilities, please call us at (503) 472-0476 or email us at info@pirages.com with “Disabled Access” in the subject line and provide a description of the specific feature you feel is not fully accessible or a suggestion for improvement.  We take your feedback seriously and will consider it as we evaluate ways to accommodate all of our customers and our overall accessibility policies.  Additionally, while we do not control such vendors, we strongly encourage vendors of third-party digital content to provide content that is accessible and user friendly.

As of April 2019, we are working to update our website in the following ways:

  • Providing closed captioning and transcripts for all our videos
  • Adding a button to increase text size
  • Working with our website host to add alt-text to our photos
  • Resolve any issues with text contrast
  • Simplify our layout for ease of use

These are just a few of the features we will be implementing over the next few months, with more to come as we continue to learn how to optimize our website for accessibility. We take issues of accessibility seriously, and recognize that this will be a gradual, steady process and not an overnight job. If you experience any issues using our site as we make these changes, or have any suggestions about ways in which we might improve accessibility for all our customers, we would greatly appreciate your feedback.
