Accessibility

This is the official accessibility statement for the Womens Support Project. If you have any questions or comments, please email us at

Standards compliance

  • All pages on this site are WCAG AAA approved, complying wih all priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Again, this is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
  • All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. This is not a judgement call; a program can determine with 100% accuracy whether a page is valid XHTML.
  • All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, h5 tags for subtitles.

Navigation aids

  • All pages have up, skip navigation and home links to aid navigation in text-only browsers.

Links

  • 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 clearly written to make sense out of context.
  • Any link which opens in a new window using JavaScript also has a none JavaScript alternative.

Images

  • All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.Visual design
  • 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.
  • Each page includes the functionality to increase / decrease the text size.
