Web Content Accessibility Guidelines

For practical accessible web site design relative to people with disabilities, we are working to support the following recommendations stated by the World Wide Web Consortium in their document Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.

  • Provide equivalent alternatives to auditory and visual content.
  • Don't rely on color alone.
  • Use markup and style sheets and do so properly.
  • Clarify natural language usage
  • Create tables that transform gracefully.
  • Ensure that pages featuring new technologies transform gracefully.
  • Ensure user control of time-sensitive content changes.
  • Ensure direct accessibility of embedded user interfaces.
  • Design for device-independence.
  • Use interim solutions.
  • Use W3C technologies and guidelines.
  • Provide context and orientation information.
  • Provide clear navigation mechanisms.
  • Ensure that documents are clear and simple.
