Through its Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), the World Wide Web Consortium is promoting a greater degree of Web access for people with disabilities. To help support this effort, the Delaware.gov Web Portal was constructed to comply with the accessibility guidelines developed through the WAI. This Portal has achieved Level A compliance with the WAI's accessibility guidelines. This means all priority 1 checkpoints—and in many cases more rigorous priority 2 checkpoints—were adhered to in its construction.
To obtain the standards developed for use by Delaware agencies, please visit the Web standards Web page.
The Delaware.gov Web Portal has been designed to be compatible with a variety of Web browsers and operating systems. In addition, to enhance the accessibility of the Delaware.gov site as well as other State of Delaware web content, a suite of services and resources is available free of charge to agencies and citizens through the Accessibility Central Web site.

The log cabin originated in Finland. Finnish settlers arrived in Delaware in the mid-1600s and brought with them plans for the log cabin, one of the enduring symbols of the American pioneer. One of the cabins has been preserved and is on display at the Delaware Agricultural Museum in Dover.
