This web site

This web site is mainly about my my photography (but also about other interests, and my ex business activities).


Accessibility of this web site

Introduction

I am trying to make this web site accessible to as many people as possible. This page summarises what I have done so far. This may help with navigation when using a reader or other accessibility technology.

Text readability

All text sizes on this web site are "relative" sizes, not "fixed" sizes. Therefore it should be possible to make all text larger with most common browsers.

The text on this web site is rarely "black on white", which can be a problem. However, all the common combinations of text colour and background colour used here pass the thresholds for the Colour Brightness Formula and the Colour Difference Formula suggested by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Simplicity and predictability

The features of this web site are about as simple as they could be, with no frames, no pop-ups, no new windows, no Flash, no animated graphics, and no Java or JavaScript or other active content. The "back" feature, and other standard controls, will always work.

Pages are typically structured using proper headers, so it should be possible to navigate through the units of material on that basis. Photographs pages are a little different, and and in that case the photograph itself is the header.

Information about photographs

There is "alt" text for all the main images on this web site. At least this will give the common names and the scientific names for a creature in the image. More information will be added for some of the images in future.

Compliance to standards

Valid CSS!

All style sheets used by this web site are valid CSS.

My policy is to conform to recognised established standards to ensure that this web site can be accessed in as many ways as possible. However, there are no special attempts made to cater for the most serious problems of early browsers, especially Netscape Navigator 4.7.
