This is the accessibility statement for snkhan.co.uk, the personal website of Sajid Nawaz Khan. The new revision of my site is optimised for accessibility. This means that content is easily obtainable and viewable in the majority of browsers, although I recommend a standard compliant browser such as Firefox, Safari or Chrome.
The site uses access keys for the main points of navigation. The assigned access keys are those recommended by the British government. The table below outlines the main access keys used throughout the site.
On Windows, you can press Alt + an access key; on a Macintosh, you can press Control + Alt + an access key.
Acronym & Abbreviations
Acronyms and abbreviations are defined the first time they are used on a page. They're never defined a second time on a page.
All images have descriptive alternative text specified, with the exception of images used for decorative purposes. All images are optimised for the web.
Most, if not all links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail. A title attribute is not given if the link appears to be in context and describes its purpose.
All pages make use of access keys, as discussed above. Skip navigation links are provided for the benefit of users who are using on screen readers.
All pages (with the exception of the Guestbook) are optimised for print. The Printer friendly pages will not print the background images, and will limit use of colour inks. The navigation and side bar do not print.
The entire site is fully XHTML Strict 1.0 and CSS2/3 compliant. The code is fully structured, and should render the same in the majority of browsers. Some pages use Flash technology (like the Guestbook), and I am working on a alternative text version.
The site uses CSS for positioning and styling its content. If your browser does not support CSS, you will still be able to fully access all the resources as usual. I would like to hope that the design is uncluttered, and easy on the eye.
