The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible. We have followed these guidelines and will make content accessible to a wider range of people with disabilities, including blindness and low vision, deafness and hearing loss, learning disabilities, cognitive limitations, limited movement, speech disabilities, photosensitivity, and combinations of these.
You can increase the overall font size throughout the website by the use of the hyperlinked symbols that appear in the footer of each page. The text size can also be enlarged by using the built-in browser commands (PC increase text size: control +, MAC increase text size command: +, PC decrease text size: control -, MAC decrease text size command: -).
The menu on this website supports keyboard interaction in addition to standard mouse events. When one of the menu items has focus, pressing the Enter key, Spacebar or Down Arrow key will open the submenu panel, and pressing the Left or Right Arrow key will shift focus to the adjacent menu item. Links within the submenu panels are included in the tab order when the panel is open.
Menus can also be navigated with the arrow keys or by typing the first character in the link name, which speeds up keyboard navigation considerably. Pressing the Escape key closes the submenu and restores focus to the parent menu item.
The menu of this website models its use of WAI-ARIA Roles, States, and Properties after those described in the WAI-ARIA Menu or Menu bar (widget) design pattern with some notable exceptions, so that it behaves better with screen reader user expectations for global navigation.
