We have designed this website so that it can be used by a wide audience on a range of platforms. The pages have been built to meet as many of the web content accessibility guidelines 1.0 (level 1) checkpoints as possible. For more information on accessibility visit the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C).
If you think there are improvements we could make, we would welcome your feedback.
Web pages on www.roxtons.com include 4 different areas:
1. Top level navigation
2. Secondary level navigation and breadcrumb trail
3. Main content area
4. Footer links
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.
1. Unless they are purely decorative items, all images used on this web site have suitable alt attributes.
2. Content should be usable/accessible with images "off" (disabled).
1. Links are written to make sense out of context.
2. The first link in every document is "Jump to content"; which allows users 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).
3. URLs are permanent whenever possible.
1. All form controls are appropriately and explicitly labeled.
2. Form validation routine does not rely on client-side script.
1. We are using non obtrusive client-side scripts.
Pop up Windows
2. If you have a Popup Blocker you should still be able to access these external documents. If they do not open automatically an alert should appear which will allow you to manually open the window.
1. This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
2. This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
3. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
4. Any information conveyed through the use of color is also available without color (i.e. text based).
How to modify this site to fit your needs
Increasing Text Size:
Accessible websites allow you to customize the font size to suit your personal preferences. Most browsers will allow you to change the font size. Below is a screenshot of Internet Explorer's "text size" menu option - most browsers have a similar feature - usually somewhere in the "View" menu. In Internet Explorer, for example, click into the view menu, scroll down to 'Text Size' and choose the desired text size from smallest, smaller, medium, larger and largest.
