The internet is the largest resource of information on the planet. It’s free use has become one of the most critical components of modern development. Therefore, it’s critically important that it be accessible to everyone.
Most of the internet is not readily useable for those with disabilities. For the vast majority of its history, my site has been no different. For this I feel remorse.
With this in mind, I sought out a solution to help make the information on my website more accessible for those with disabilities. I long for a just world where there is more love, not less – all-ways.💜℠ This includes quality, equity, respect, independence, and accessibility for those who are disabled.
I don’t know if this is a perfect solution, and I don’t know if it will improve your browsing experience on my website – because I designed it myself, and I’m not a pro, so I imagine that my website code is messy and don’t simplify or adjust well. But this is a start.
To help me in this effort, I am utilizing the EqualWeb website accessibility tool.
The website features an accessibility menu. A click on the menu makes accessibility buttons available. After selecting a menu item, the user should wait for the page to be loaded.
What are the menu items?
Option for keyboard-based navigation
Adaptation of the website for NVDA assistive technology
Enlargement of the font on the website to 4 levels of magnification
Immobilization of moving elements, and stoppage of blinking
Altered color contrast against dark background
Altered color contrast against light background
Adaptation for color-blind users
Change of font for better readability
Enlarged cursor, and change of color to black or white
Enlargement of display to ~200%
Emphasizing links on the website
Emphasizing headings on the website
Presentation of alt text to graphics
Declaration of accessibility
Sending of accessibility feedback
Despite my efforts to apply accessibility to browsing on every webpage, it may be discovered that some of webpages have not yet received accessibility or are not suitable for any available accessibility solution.I am continuing the effort to improve ∞actualinfinity’s accessibility to the full extent possible, guided by my belief, and by my moral and ethical commitment, that my website should be usable by every human, including people with disabilities.
