The A.S. web pages are are being updated with correct HTML and CSS language. This ensures that the information is provide in a clear, orderly manner with no missing links or confusing directions.
All images are being scrutinized for “alt” tags to explain content to users who do not view the images. Additionally, all information provided in a non-text format will have a text summary.
No color will be used to convey important information. It will just be used to style the page. The colors will also contrast sufficiently for most viewers. The color scheme has been tested for easy viewing by people with color blindness.
Text and Formatting is decorated with Cascading Style Sheets so as not to load the pages down with repetitive code. This allows for quicker download and faster processing. Styles are automatically read and used by most browsers, but they can be disabled if they make it hard for a viewer to use the page. Styles are not used to simulate more appropriate markup language such as headers and lists. Users can also change the size of the text for easier reading by using their browser preferences. Changing the size of the text will not cause overlapping and distortion of information.
All image maps have appropriate “alt” tags to name the links for users who do not view images.
All tables used solely for design are labeled as such. All tables used to organize information have a summary, table headings, and column and row orientations. Tables do not rely on color to present information. Information is also broken down into smaller, clearer tables instead of large, confusing tables.
This site does not use animated gifs or images that flicker. Flickering images can be hard to some users to see and can trigger epileptic seizures.
Skip Links are available on every page for users to jump to the content of the page instead of cycling through repetitive links on each page.
There are no forms or scripts that require a timed response. Users can take as much time as need to access all information.
