Accessibility

Inclusive Web Design

This website has been built on the wordpress platform and utilizes many accessibility features including the following:

  • Access Keys have been added to the Navigation Menus to improve accessibility
  • Re-size the text buttons on the upper right hand side of every page
  • Practice HTML Techniques for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 including using strong and em should be used to denote emphasis instead of b and i. This is because screen readers (used by blind people, etc. to browse the web) process only strong and em, not b and i.

We test and evaluation our site for accessibility using tools like:

  • http://validator.w3.org/
  • http://jigsaw.w3.org/css-validator/
  • http://achecker.ca/checker/index.php
  • http://wave.webaim.org/
