All pages on this site comply with all priority 1, 2, and in most cases, 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. This is always a judgement call; many accessibility features can be measured, but many can not. I have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
Many 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). Links are written to make sense out of context.
There are no links that open new windows without warning.
All of the input elements in the forms on this site are marked up with label tags. These provide several benefits: Users who have difficulty navigating through a form with a mouse can, for example, click on the text beside the form elements, such as text input boxes, in order to enter those elements.
The use of label tags allows screen readers to intelligently announce what a particular input element is, by reading the label.
All the tables in our main content pages are marked up to show the relationship between the table headers and the table cells. We have also provided a summary and caption for the table to aid this understanding.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user−specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
We have used Tab Index on pages that contain forms, to improve keyboard navigation. Tab Index means that when you use the 'Tab' button on your keyboard you will be taken directly to the form fields and buttons, instead of firstly having to tab through all the links that precede the form.
