Accessibility

User friendly design

In addition to the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines we have implemented our own design rules to make the site clear and easy to use:

  • Using meaningful ALT text so there is a descriptive alternative for all images.
  • Using clear descriptions and calls to action on hyperlinks.
  • No use of frames, which are difficult for special browsers to display.
  • Limited use of JavaScript, which doesn't work with some browsers and screen readers.
  • Using an easier-to-read font set against a light blue background with no obtrusive background images.
  • No pop-ups or obtrusive advertising. The Keith Bush and Associates website currently carries some external advertising.
