Accessibility

We have implemented the following accessibility features on this website to make it easier to use for people with disabilities.

Navigation shortcuts

At the start of every page there is a 'Skip Navigation' link that allows you to jump directly to the most important parts of the page. Sighted users who use the keyboard to navigate will see this link appear beside the AOI logo when using the Tab key to navigate through the page.

Well Structured Markup

HTML heading tags are used to convey the document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles, and so on.
Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily.

W3C Accessibility Guidelines

This site was deisgned in accordance with worldwide accessibility standards published by the W3C and in particular is WCAG AA approved, complying with all priority 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. (http://www.w3.org/WAI/).
