Improve Your Website is committed to ensuring that this website is accessible to everyone. We believe that websites should be accessible to all, irrespective of disability or access to a specific platform or technical equipment.
Specially we have done the following:
- used clear, simple language as opposed to jargon,
- used simple intuitive navigation,
- validated HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) with the exception of third-party code,
- checked our font size and colour contrast so as to make them legible for people with visual impairment. We have used www.webaim.org’s colour contrast checker
- checked our site’s font and background colour to ensure there are no combinations that are detrimental to colour blindness conditions,
- designed all pages on our website so that all information that is conveyed with colour is also available without colour,
- used a text equivalent for all non-text elements (images, embedded objects, audio and video) such as alt tags (descriptions) for all images.
Visitors using recent versions of screen readers can navigate using the following keystrokes:
- H to cycle forwards through the headings
- Shift + H to cycle backwards through the headings
- 1 to navigate to the next level 1 heading (or a number between 1 and 6 to navigate to the next heading on this level)
- Shift + 1 to navigate to the previous level 1 heading (or a number between 1 and 6 to navigate to the previous heading on this level)
- INSERT + F6 to provide a list of all headings
Also, keep in mind that people with disabilities are not always using an assistive technology due to the cost. Opera has excellent keyboard navigation that is invaluable to visitors with motor difficulties. In Opera, the following keys can be used to navigate headings:
- S to cycle forwards through the headings
- W to cycle backwards through the headings
