Accessibility

Kingsbury Lions Club (the Club) website has been designed to be accessible and usable, working in accordance with standards and guidelines laid out by the W3C in their WAI.

the Club have undertaken to use their knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the internet, to develop a website that is clear and simple for everybody to use. This means that wherever possible, all users of this site will enjoy the same quality of experience. In order to provide a more flexible experience for my visitors, the Club have chosen to use CSS and Responsive Web Design for layout.

Validation
the Club have used HTML5 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because they believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation. Therefore, all pages validate HTML5 and all style sheets used on this site validate as CSS.

Most pages on this site conform to AA accessibility as measured against version 2.0 of the WCAG.

Access Keys
the Club have deliberately chosen not to use access keys on this site. They feel that keyboard shortcut keys place an unnecessary burden on the memory of the user and that they ultimately replicate functionality already possessed by screen reader technologies. The new WCAG v2.0 states that implementation of access keys is not a featured checkpoint.

Font sizes
The site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.

If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page will "degrade gracefully" so that it is still readable.

Links
Links have title attributes that describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target. If you are using a mouse, or other pointing device, these can be viewed by hovering over the link text.

Pop-up windows
the Club hates pop-ups. Therefore, they don't use them on this site. If a link opens a new browser window then this will be explained before you select the link.

Changing your browser settings
It is possible to change fonts and colours used throughout the site by changing your browser settings.

Feedback
the Club have strived to present a web site that harnesses technology, usability and accessibility, but are equally aware that true success in this field can only be maintained through a process of interaction with you, our visitor, and continuing development.
