Structural Markup

Web pages on omdesign.co.uk include 3 different areas:

– A header bar that includes the main navigation,
– A main content area,
– A footer.

When CSS (Cascading Styles Sheets) are not applied to a document (or when using a screen reader), the 4 areas are read in the above order.

Images

– Unless they are purely decorative items, all images used on this website have suitable alt attributes.
– Content should be usable/accessible with images “off” (disabled).

Links

– Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
– URLs are permanent whenever possible.

Forms

– All form controls are appropriately and explicitly labeled.
– We provide an email address as an alternative form of access for our online forms.
– Form validation routine does not rely on client-side script.

Scripts

– We are using non obtrusive client-side scripts.

Visual design

– This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
– Any information conveyed through the use of colour is also available without colour (i.e. text based).
