|We are continuously working to improve the accessibility of content on our website. Below, you’ll find a few recommendations to help make your browsing experience more accessible:
If you have trouble seeing web pages, the US Social Security Administration offers these tips for optimizing your computer and browser to improve your online experience.
• Use the keyboard to navigate screens
• Increase text size
• Magnify your screen
• Change background and text colors
• Make your mouse pointer more visible (Windows only)
Voice Recognition Controls
If you are looking for mouse and keyboard alternatives, speech recognition software such as Dragon Naturally Speaking may help you navigate web pages and online services. This software allows the user to move focus around a web page or application screen through voice controls. If you are deaf or hard of hearing, there are several accessibility features available to you.
If you are visually impaired website reading software can help read the website content to you. Website reading software like ChromeVox, which is an addon extension to the chrome website browser can help. There are also other website readers that work with a computers operating system (OS) that provide more universal coverage outside of website browsing.
Closed captioning provides a transcript for the audio track of a video presentation that is synchronized with the video and audio tracks. Captions are generally visually displayed over the video, which benefits people who are deaf and hard of hearing, and anyone who cannot hear the audio due to noisy environments. Most of our video content includes captions. Learn how to turn captioning on and off in YouTube.
Your computer, tablet, or mobile device has volume control features. Each video and audio service has its own additional volume controls. Try adjusting both your device’s volume controls and your media players’ volume controls to optimize your listening experience.
If the recommendations above do not meet your needs, we invite you to give us a call.
Nice neighborhood; expectations exceeded
After my disenchantment with the prices of hotels downtown, I found Brooklyn Center Suites. It was much more affordable, with restaurants within walking distance and convenient access to mass transit. I stayed three nights and appreciated the proximity to downtown as well as Division Street restaurants. It was clean, comfortable and safe. Jane surpassed by expectations by picking me up and dropping me off at the Amtrak station. I would definitely stay here again
Your Home Away From Home
During a vacation to Vancouver, Canada in 1997, we discovered a new concept in lodging – the extended stay hotel. We wanted to provide the same comfortable, clean and affordable lodging so we started the Brooklyn Center Suites in the historic Brooklyn neighborhood. Within easy access to mountains, beaches, rivers and historic area sites, we hope you will make this your ‘home away from home’ to come and explore. Just ask about the extra storage available for those bikes and kayaks, and we hope to see you soon.
