Accessibility

GE strives to make its products and services accessible for all users, including people with disabilities. Since 2002, GE has been working to make its Web content accessible to as broad a user base as possible. GE Capital complies with best practices and standards as defined by Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C WAI).

GE Capital’s current accessibility features include:

  • Alternative text detail for appropriate images and other non-text elements.
  • Title attributes for additional information about links and indication of new browser windows.
  • Structural markup to indicate headings and lists to aid in page comprehension.
  • Association of forms with labels.
  • Association of all data cells in a data table with their headers.
  • JavaScript and style sheets to enhance the appearance and functionality of the site. If these technologies are not available, alternative content is provided where necessary to ensure graceful degradation.

As we continue to improve our Web site, we will reflect any changes here within our accessibility statement, so you will know the progress we are making.
