consology.com has been built with a global audience in mind.
This audience might be using a typical computer, a mobile phone or maybe even a Screen Reader.
As our site is updated, accessibility problems might slip in. If you spot something on our site that could be causing a problem for you, contact us and let us know!
consology.com contains a number of accessibility features, some of them are subtle or behind the scenes while others are more blatant.
On our site you'll find the following accessibility features in effect:
Accesskeys are not an ideal solution to navigating a website but can aid users, especially when it comes to cutting-down on repetitive tasks.
The accesskey functions mentioned here are a quick alternative to those users without a pointer device.
Using an accesskey varies from computer to computer, on a PC, holding down the ALT key and the relevant Accesskey will fire off the link associated with the accesskey. On a Mac, users should hold down the CONTROL key and combine it with the relevant accesskey.
This site makes use of the following Accesskeys:
Where possible, complex terms, colloquialisms and acronyms have been described to their full extent. For those users with a pointer device such as a mouse, can have an acronym explain by simply hovering the mouse pointer over the applicable word.
Hyperlinks also use a meaningful phrase as the basis for the text within them. You shouldn't find any "Click here" links on this site!
If an image is intended to convey information, (i.e. not for purely aesthetic reasons) then a suitable alternative is provided. This also helps to explain the image while you wait for the page to load (which hopefully won't take too long anyway!)
Hidden headings and text also further explain the document structure to those users operating a screen reader.
This site makes use of Web Standards compliant HTML and CSS. By using stylesheets to control the presentation of this website, it means the underlying HTML is lightweight and easy to read or even hear.
All these features are in place to aid you, the user. If you feel that we haven't met this promise in any way, please feel free to contact us at your earliest convenience.
