Kent's Campaign for the 2012 Games is fully committed to ensuring its website is accessible and inclusive for all its users.
Web accessibility focuses on ensuring all users, regardless of their physical and mental capability, are able to access the content and services on a particular website.
Our aim has been to make Kentsport.org/london2012 accessible to all who may be interested in finding out more about our campign. Its design and build has taken into account the following guidelines:
- The WC3 Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) www.w3.org
- The Disability Discrimination Act (DDA, part three) - www.disability.gov.uk/dda
These guidelines include:
- Using an easy to read font type.
- Ensuring suitable foreground and background colour contrast.
- Using clear and simple grammar.
- Providing meaningful text equivalents for pictures.
- Providing simple and consistent site navigation.
- Assigning access keys for key navigational elements.
- Ensuring the target of each link is clearly defined.
- Providing a Table of Contents.
- Providing navigational short cuts for users of text only browsers and page readers.
- Using appropriate structural mark-up to maximise browser support.
- Ensuring all content and functionality is available to users without content style sheet (CSS), image and script support.
does present accessibility problems to some users so we have ensured that
there is a link to email@example.com
at the top of this two pages. This allows the user to contact Kent's Campaign for the 2012 Games
We host a number of different video clips on the site both to give people
a wider view of our bid and to make our content more accessible to people
who find it easier to view rather than read content.
We have included these clips in the two main media formats (Real Player and Windows Media Player) which are suitable for a variety of different connection types and speeds.
Our website offers a link to BrowseAloud. This is a free tool that speech enables website content. It offers a practical website access service to people with reading difficulties and those who find it easier to listen to, rather than read the content of our website.
It assists in the navigations of our website for the following sections of the population:
- Those with low literacy and reading skills
- Those where English is not the first language
- Dyslexic people
- Those with mild visual impairment
Our main navigation options have been assigned keyboard access keys for
users who do not use pointing devices (such as a mouse).
The access keys we have used are based on the UK Governments recommendations [link].
