Seven Oaks General Hospital is committed to providing a website that’s accessible—and usable—to all visitors, including those using non-visual browsers. In practice this means that the site adheres to certain common sense rules of web development, of which some examples follow.
- Relative font sizing. This technique ensures that all visitors can easily change the site’s default font size in their browser—a crucial feature for those with poor vision.
- Information indicated with color is also indicated without color. While this practice benefits everyone, it is particularly helpful for colorblind visitors, who can have difficulty identifying links that rely on color only.
- Link text clearly identifies the destination of each link. Another technique that improves usability for everyone, this practice is essential for blind and visually impaired visitors who use special browsers that cull a list of links from the page to aid navigation.
If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of the site, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
