Get bigger Text

If you want an easy way to enlarge the text size, try this first:
  • With almost all modern browsers you can hold down the Ctrl key on your key board (the Command key on a Macintosh) and press the + (plus) key to increase the text size or - (minus) key to reduce the text size.

Other features

  • This site approaches full compliance with W3C WCAG 2.0

    • Since the majority of the content of the site is provided by our members, there may variations in the reading-comprehension level of the entries
    • Some entries may contain jargon that is not fully explained
    • Some acronyms and abbreviations may not be expanded if the member did not provide the appropriate details

  • Three different methods to navigate within a page are provided:

    1. For people who navigate between page sections using HTML headers, page and section headers are used logically and consistently. For instance, the H1 header is always the start of the main content. The Site Menu title is always an H2 header.

    2. Each page has a "Skip to" link:
      • The "Skip to main content" link takes you to the beginning of the main content section, in all cases the page's title.
      • The "Skip to main content" link is the first link on every page and becomes visible when it receives focus via the TAB key

    3. This site has implemented WAI-ARIA landmark roles to identify logical blocks of content and functionality. This will become useful as more assistive technology includes support for WAI-ARIA markup. For more information about WAI-ARIA landmark roles, read the blog by Steve Faulkner of The Paciello Group.
