WebID has made the following efforts to make this site accessible to disabled users and alternative browser formats. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please let us know.
Most browsers can skip to links by using keys defined on the web site. For Windows users, you press ALT + an access key; for Mac users, you press Control + an access key.
We use the following access keys:
- Access key 1 - to go to the Home page.
- Access key 2 - to skip the navigation and get right to the content.
- Access key 9 - to email us with feedback, questions, and concerns.
- Access key 0 - to go to the Accessibility Statement.
Web Standards and W3C Guidelines
We have made efforts to ensure our code is standard HTML5, CSS3, etc. using W3C specifications. Our pages are structured semantic markup, ensuring the documents are organized in a logical manner.
We have followed the W3C Checkpoints for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
We have made efforts to ensure our site is compatible with the 508 Standards Guide.
Skip Nav link
For alternative browser users we have provided Skip Navigation links at the top of each page so a screen reader user will not have to hear the menu read over and over. They can use this link to skip directly to the main content.
To help users identify the main parts of the page we have used ARIA roles to define them. Navigation is defined as well as the main content and complementary sections.
Image Alt attributes
For sight challenged users or imageless browsers we have identified content images with alt attribute text to help describe the image.
Color Cues and Link underlining
If information is conveyed through color, the information is still attainable without color.
In most body text we have underlined links. This helps colorblind users identify which parts of text are links, because obviously color alone won't suffice. The main Nav is identified as a Nav by HTML5 tags and an ARIA role identifier.
We have used Acronym tags where possible.
We have used Form Labels to identify the purpose of each section, or input, of a form.
