BeeARTisan recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups, including the disabled, the visually impaired and those with motor deficiences and cognitive disabilities.
We’ve designed this site with accessibility in mind. Some of the general features include:
- The use of clear, simple language which is easy to understand.
- The use of common web conventions.
- Avoiding the use of blinking or flickering elements.
Our site is usable by anyone with colour deficient vision. We’ve checked the site’s font and background colour to ensure there are no combinations against the different colour blindness conditions and ensured that all information is still clear.
Font and text size
We’ve used clear, legible font for all text and headings.
Providing alternatives for non-text elements gives visually impaired and screen-reader users wider access to our website.
Images, videos and other non-text elements
We’ve made it possible to use our site without having to view graphics or images. All non-text elements, such as images, animations, symbols, audio, video and multimedia have text equivalents. We’ve done this by providing descriptive alt attributes for them. Purely decorative graphics or formatting images have empty alt attributes.
Links and navigation
Structuring a website so it is simple and streamlined to use helps to improve the experience for all. For example, placing page items in a logical order and making the website easy to navigate helps people with visual impairments, motor deficiencies and cognitive disabilities.
We’ve made navigation links consistent between pages throughout the site.
Our website does not use pop-up windows unless they are appropriate.
Forms and tables
Clearly labelled tables help readers to understand the content on a page and to fill in content into correct form fields.
We do occasionally use tables for layout but we ensure we follow WCAG guidelines. This means tables do not have any structural mark-up for visual purposes and they make sense when presented in a linear way.
