We care about Accessibility
1. All pages on this site are WCAG A approved, complying
with all priority 1 and most of priority 2
guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. This
is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and
cannot be tested automatically. The Nene Park Trust has reviewed
the guidelines and believes all pages are in compliance.
2. We aim for the pages on this site to validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
3. Most pages on this site use Valid CSS.
4. Pages on this site use structured semantic mark-up. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles.
You can use the Tab key on your keyboard to move between links on a page. A single press of Tab high-lights the next link, Shift+Tab high-lights the previous link.
1. Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article)
2. Links are written to make sense out of context
1. All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics currently include empty ALT attributes.
2. Complex images include TITLE attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers
1. This site uses cascading style sheets and progressive enhancement for visual layout
2. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers, as well as the ability to change the font size on the site itself, using the AA button in the bottom left hand corner of the site.
