  5. This Site

This entire site has been designed to comply with the WAI AA standard for accessibility. I have tried as far as possible to go beyond this standard and incorporate good practice in design, specifically as it relates to accessibility and usability.All pages throughout the site should validate to the XHTML 1.0 standard, and all CSS used on the site should be valid.

Level Double-A conformance icon, W3C-WAI Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 | Valid XHTML 1.0! | Valid CSS!

If you're intrigued to know about the different kinds of badges you can find out there, try looking at my Accessibility Badges Information Page.

If you find a page on my site where you encounter accessibility or usability problems, or you find a page that you believe does not meet the AA standard for accessibility, please contact me and let me know. I have not used accesskeys on this site because current information available seems to indicate that they are of disputable benefit. If you believe the use of accesskeys would increase your ability to use this site, again please let me know.

What does A, AA and AAA mean, then?

A site which achieves level A compliance satisfies all priority 1 checkpoints. A site which achieves level AA compliance satisfies all priority 1 and 2 checkpoints. And a site which, yes you've guessed it, satisfies priorities 1, 2 and 3 achieves level AAA compliance.

Okay then, what is this priority thing?

  • Priority 1 - A web content developer MUST satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it impossible to access information in this document.
  • Priority 2 - A web content developer SHOULD satisfy this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it difficult to access information in this document.
  • Priority 3 - A web content developer MAY address this checkpoint. Otherwise, one or more groups will find it somewhat difficult to access information in the document.
