Accessibility

“The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.” Source: Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web.

As the worldwide leader in the assistive technology field for over twenty years, we are committed to providing a website that is as accessible as possible to all people, including those with disabilities such as visual impairments. This website was developed and is maintained using World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines for accessibility and is Section 508 compliant. Conformance with these guidelines helps to make the web more user friendly for all people.

We are continually striving to improve the experience for all of our visitors and are always seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall accessibility. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing our website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Below, we outline some of the features we have implemented in our accessibility efforts:

  • All links have title tags so that screen readers users can hear the destination of the link itself. We’re trying to avoid the use of “Click Here” which is non-descriptive.
  • All images have alternate text. Once again, screen reader users can hear a description of the image.
  • The website is built so that users can adjust the text size to their own preference without breaking the structure of the site. See www.aisquared.com/textsize for more information.
  • Since a large percentage of people visiting our website use Screen Magnification technologies we designed the site so that all site navigation features are on the top left where possible.
  • We’ve taken care to provide ample spacing between text elements and graphics.
