The Heathman Hotel Kirkland follows ADA regulations to ensure both the property facilities and the website are accessible to all. Below you will find a list of accessibility features offered. Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing. If, at any time, you have questions or concerns about accessibility, please contact us at infokirkland@heathmankirkland.com or 425.284.5800 and we'll do everything possible to address the issue as soon as possible.


Website Accessibility

The Heathman Hotel is committed to furthering the accessibility and usability of its website, www.heathmankirkland.com. The Heathman Hotel will be using the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level AA (“WCAG 2.0 AA”) to guide its compliance. The relevant portions of WCAG 2.0 AA will serve as our primary web accessibility standard, though other standards may also be used to provide accessibility to the extent required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (“ADA”). Our website will be tested on a periodic basis in accordance with these standards in an effort to ensure accessibility. Some of the testing methods used may include assistive technology such as screen readers and screen magnifiers. If you have specific questions or concerns about the accessibility of any particular webpage on www.heathmankirkland.com, any of our other destination websites, or any facility features at the hotel, please contact us. If you encounter an accessibility issue, please be sure to specify the particular web page in your email, and we will make all reasonable efforts to make that page accessible for you.

Have your computer read webpages aloud

Most modern operating systems are capable of text to speech voice synthesizing. This allows you to have your computer read entire webpages or selected text on your screen out loud to you.

For Windows, hold the Ctrl key and press the Escape key, then type "narrator" and then press the Enter key.

For Mac OS X, click the Apple menu in the top-left corner of your screen and go to "System Preferences", then choose "Dictation & Speech", then click "Text to Speech". Check the "Speak selected text when the key is pressed" checkbox.

Third party software is also available.

Increase the font size on any webpage

Most modern web browsers are capable of increasing/decreasing font sizes while on a webpage. For detailed instructions please see the WCAG documentation page.

To increase the font size, hold the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the + (plus) key.

To decrease the font size, hold the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the - (minus) key.

To revert to the default font size, hold the Ctrl key (Command key on a Macintosh) and press the 0 (zero) key.

You can also set font-sizes universally for all pages that you visit in some browsers.

Zoom content on your screen
