We are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to everyone. If you have any suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please use our contact form.
- All pages on this site follows priorities 1 & 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
- All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict.
- All pages on this site use structured semantic markup.
Web pages on Noteworthy.com include 4 different areas:
- A header bar that includes the main navigation,
- A "side bar",
- A main content area,
- A footer.
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.
- Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
- Links are written to make sense out of context.
- The first link in every document is a "SkipNav"; it is to skip directly to what is considered the main section of the page (the content). We have implemented this feature in a way that it allows Internet Explorer users to tab through (past that target link).
- All form controls are appropriately and explicitly labeled.
- We provide an email address as an alternative form of access for our online forms.
- We are using non obtrusive client-side scripts.
