Esperion Therapeutics, Inc. is committed to providing a seamless experience on our website for all individuals. We are continually working to improve the accessibility and usability of our website to enable all visitors to receive the information on the site, regardless of differences in ability.

 

What We Mean by Accessibility

Accessibility means that anyone browsing our site, including those individuals who are differently abled, can readily access the content on the website by using functionality embedded in it. We aim to adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) to the extent possible. For example, we:

  • Provide content that can be magnified using standard browser controls
  • Generally accompany images and graphs with short written summaries or descriptions of the information captured in the image or graph
  • Offer accompanying text where color differences are important to the information being presented (e.g., part of a bar graph) so that a visitor who has difficulty seeing colors or distinguishing between colors will be able to receive the information
  • Refrain from the use of flashing or pulsating images to be respectful of visitors with neurological conditions
  • Use icons that are simple, consistent, and easily understood. Where we use an icon, we will generally also use a word to describe its function.

 

Facilitating Access to Content on Our Website


Adjusting Font Size

If you find that the font size of the text on our webpage is too small for you to comfortably read the information presented, simply:
 

For Windows® users

  • Increase the font size:
    • Press and hold down the Control key (ctrl) while pressing the equals symbol (=) at the same time
    • To make the text larger, hold the Control key (ctrl) down while you press the equals symbol (=) again; each repetition of the equals symbol will enlarge the text a bit more
  • Decrease the font size:
    • Press and hold down the Control key (ctrl) while also pressing the minus symbol (-) at the same time
    • To make the text smaller, hold the Control key (ctrl) down while you press the minus symbol (-) again; each repetition of the minus symbol will decrease the text a bit more
  • Return to original size:
    • Press the Ctrl key (ctrl) and the number “0”


For Mac® users

  • Increase the font size:
    • Press and hold down the Command key (⌘) while pressing the plus symbol (+) at the same time
    • To make the text larger, hold the Command key (⌘) down while you press the plus symbol (+) again; each repetition of the plus symbol will enlarge the text a bit more
  • Decrease the font size:
    • Press and hold down the Command key (⌘) while also pressing the minus symbol (-) at the same time
    • To make the text smaller, hold the Command key (⌘) down while you press the minus symbol (-) again; each repetition of the minus symbol will decrease the text a bit more
  • Return to original size:
    • Press the Command key (⌘) and the number “0”


Adjusting Contrast

Contrast means the ability to easily distinguish between foreground and background. Depending on the browser you are using to access our website, you may be able to make the contrast sharper between the text color and the background of the webpage.

For example, if using Internet Explorer:

  • Open the Internet Explorer browser by selecting the icon as displayed here:
  • Press ALT + left SHIFT + PRINT SCREEN
  • Windows will open a tab labeled “High Contrast”
  • Choose “Yes” to change the settings to a higher level of contrast

Other browsers, like Safari and Android, have accessibility options that you can easily locate from the browser’s “Settings” tab.
