A few months ago, I decided to create an Accessibility statement to highlight the attention I gave to usability/accessibility features I implemented while creating a particular web site (selected by Accessites.org).
So with the input of a few GAWDS members (Norman B. Robinson, Mel Pedley, Daniel Champion, Gez Lemon, John Foliot, Mike Cherim, Jim Byrne and Jon Gibbins), I came up with this:
We are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to everyone. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please use our contact form, as we are continually striving to improve the experience for all of our visitors.
Web pages on www.myDomain.com include 4 different areas:
When CSS (Cascading Styles Sheet) are not applied to a document (or when using a screen reader), the 4 areas are read in the above order.
This site uses the accesskey attribute. Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT+ an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key.
Unfortunately, access keys often clash with keys set aside for use with other UAs (i.e. assistive technology). For this reason, we have decided to not set default access keys, but rather let you set your own (for specific elements) through our Access Key Preferences form.
Note: Internet Explorer requires you to press ALT + an access key + Enter to access linked documents.
These links explain the many ways you can make the web more accessible to you.
