The Missouri Business Portal takes accessibility very seriously, and thus, have made every reasonable effort to make the web site accessible to all users. The site has been designed to comply with the Missouri IT Accessibility Standard, which is based in the federal Section 508 standard for web sites. It has also been designed according to Missouri's Digital Media Developers guidelines for designing for accessibility for disabled users.

Special note for Internet Explorer:
In meeting accessibility standards, we have made the text size based on the browser's default settings. The Missouri Business Portal has been designed to the common size setting of "Medium". If the text size appears tiny (or large), the browser options are most likely set to that specific value. To remedy this, change the browser's options by going to View...Text Size...Medium (or other desired size). You'll notice that the site's text scales according to the selected settings.
