When located at primary location
The following statements apply to this site when hosted at https://hugo-oldnew-mashup.danielfdickinson.ca
The display colours have been chosen for high contrast. All combinations of foreground and background colour in the theme used on this site should meet or exceed the w3.org’s WCAG 2.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) AAA standard for contrast. In addition, effort has been made to avoid the use of colour alone to provide information (that is colour is an enhancement not a requirement to effectively use and understand the site).
Where possible the font size is responsive; on devices with higher resolutions the font size is automatically increased to compensate for what is often a higher DPI.
Avoiding Mobility Barriers
This site/theme has dropped a ‘hover for information’ mechanism because it represents an accessibility barrier for those with motor control impairment. Efforts are underway to modify the menuing system so that ‘flyouts’ don’t require fine control or timing to avoid the menu disappearing from under the user (still using a pure CSS design).
All pages are run through the
Tidy HTML ‘linter’ which provides fairly good
validation of the the page HTML (after conversion from Markdown) during Travis
CI ‘builds’ (or manually). In addition, the live pages have been validated
against the W3C’s (Web standards organization) page validator. Having
valid HTML and CSS helps screenreaders and magnifiers properly parse the pages.
Further Tidy’s validations checks for WCAG guidelines have been performed and acted upon.
