Accessibility is concerned with a design ethic that caters for people with physical, mental or technological disabilities and their ability to use the Internet.
Accessible websites are:
- Perceivable - all content is presented in a form that can be perceived by everyone.
- Operable - interface elements in the content are operable by everyone.
- Navigable - content orientation and navigation are possible for everyone.
- Understandable - content and controls should be readily understandable.
- Robust - maximum compatibility with current and future browsers, assistive technologies and other programs.
Wordbank recognises that, at time of launch, our site is not accessible. We consider accessibility to be an important aspect of localization and globalization strategy and plan to rectify our accessibility problems by:
- Removing all framed pages.
- Separating formatting information from content via CSS and XHTML.
- Reorganising the structure of our files to be more accessible to screen-reading software.
- Providing appropriate alt text for all our images.
- Providing access keys to site areas.
- Gaining Bobby AAA approval.
- Reaching WCAG AAA-compliant status.
- Reaching Section 508-compliant approval.
