Straightforward Design - Our website uses simple information architecture, organized navigation and reliable headings throughout.
Images With Alternative Text - This text provides further detail for an image or destination of a hyperlinked image. It is commonly called an ALT tag, and they are accessible to screen readers, and visible when the mouse is placed over the image. They also provide a description of graphics for people who have images turned off in their browser.
Style Sheets - Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) centralize the style information for the website. Using CSS allows for greater flexibility when a style change is needed to accommodate a specific disability. It also keeps the code clean and is faster to download.
Layout - The design uses a flexible layout, built to optimize viewing for the vast majority of visitors. The layout will accommodate any screen resolution, mobile or tablet device.
Multimedia - When available, the transcripts of audio and video description are linked with the file. Videos are provided using an HTML5 player allowing media to be viewed on iPhone and iPad devices.
Hypertext Links - Text is specifically chosen to make sense when read out of context, so all users know where they are going when they select a link.
Accessibility Validation - Our design work is checked using tools, checklists, and guidelines at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG.
