Assist Knowledge Development recognises the importance of providing a website that can be used in a variety of ways which do not depend on a single sense, ability, or technology. Maintaining a website and providing training that is usable, desirable and accessible for all user groups, including the disabled, is our ongoing commitment.
Our site conforms to W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, level A.
Below is a list of critical requirements, which alone cover nearly 40% of highlighted by W3C accessibility problems. These have been given extra attention and highest priority during expert evaluation.
Structured, semantic markup is used to represent document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles, and so on.
Descriptive and meaningful text equivalents are provided for all content images, graphical buttons, symbols and objects. Images are not used to represent text, all headings are styled with the help of CSS and can be resized to suit users needs.
Website design has been tested against colour contrast to ensure that all information is still clear.
Most of the text is written as dark grey on white, providing a high level of contrast.
Relative units have been used in markup language and CSS, therefore website layout accommodates resizing text even in Internet Explorer for Windows.
