- Opera 7.02 now supports the accesskey. Opera users need to click SHIFT+ESC+[Accesskey].
The Accessibility Works website was designed right from the start to include all currently available accessibility features. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web site Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines have been met to priority three for all pages on the site.
- All pages of this site are Bobby AAA approved (tested 2 December 2005), complying with all priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines .
- All pages are Section 508 approved , complying with all guidelines of the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines .
- All pages validate as XHTML Transitional and the related Cascading Style Sheets have also been validated.
- All tables have a caption, a summary, and properly scoped header cells, to allow screen readers to render them intelligibly.
- A skip navigation link, which allows users to move screen readers directly to the main content of the page, is provided at the top of wach page
- All links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article).
- Wherever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.
- Link text is never duplicated; two links with the same link text always point to the same address.
- There are no links that open new windows without a warning in the title tag.
- PHP is used to switch between larger and smaller text size. If you would like to implement this on your website please contact us and we will pass you the relevant code.
- All content images used in the home page and all archives include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics are rendered as background images and therefore will not be recognised by screen readers.
- Complex images include LONGDESC; attributes and links to text-only descriptions to explain each image to non-visual readers.
This site and all its archives use cascading style sheets for visual layout.If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets at all, the content of each page is still accessible.
