This page describes some of the features that have been incorporated into the site to aid accessibility for all users. All pages produced will conform to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
Links in the site have been given a tab weighting to allow quick access to each link. Tab weighting allows the user to scroll the page using the tab key on the keyboard if they do not wish to use their mouse. The tabs run from left to right starting at the top of the page. The order for tab indexing in a page is as follows:
- Top Navigation
- Popular Pages (on homepage)
- Case Studies (on homepage)
- About Us (on homepage)
- Media (on homepage)
- Contact Form
- Favourites, Email, Print, PDF
- Sign in
- Lower Navigation (if available)
- Page Content links
- Contact Us
- Breadcrumb trail
- Footer links
- James Fisher & Sons plc links
Links have title attributes that describe the link in greater detail, hover over the link with your mouse and this description is displayed. Links which are already descriptive may not have a further title description.
