“The power of the Web is in its universality. Access by everyone regardless of disability is an essential aspect.”— Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director and inventor of the World Wide Web
South Point, LLC is committed to providing an online environment that is accessible for everyone, including individuals with disabilities. From the standpoint of usability, the expression “less is more” best describes our intent for this site.
This précis refers to the site’s layout and navigation as we continually enhance the user experience with accessibility in mind. If you have questions or comments about the accessibility or other functional attributes of this site, please contact us via ‘email@example.com’.
The main goal of the site is to present key themes of our business through crisp, simple design and clear content that we hope informs and enriches readers.
The site presents a grid-based, wide banner look anchored to each of five principle content sections along with secondary highlight pages, left-banner and navigational configurations. A vertical scroll is used to give the site depth, with clearly-labelled buttons provided encouraging users to drill down for more granular content. The composition of each page is organized around a grid geometry.
• The South Point site aims to have all pages validating HTML5 standards.
• All pages use CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) allowing for user-defined stylesheets.
• Users should note that although this site supports basic rendering for legacy browsers, accessibility features are optimized for browsers complying with the standards. In the interests of security and optimizing your browser experience, using the latest version of any browser is highly recommended.
Macintosh: Safari, Firefox, Camino, Chrome, Opera, etc., latest releases. Windows/Linux: Chrome, Firefox latest releases. (Any browser except Microsoft Internet Explorer which is not W3C, CSS3 compliant.)
• We are currently trialing WAI-ARIA Document Landmark Roles as set out in W3C Accessibility Initiative. This relatively new set of features may not be supported by older versions of browsers, but we have not found their inclusion to be otherwise detrimental to older assisted-browsing technologies.
• Responsive layout – this site uses responsive CSS to resize content so that it will fit on nearly any kind of device on which it is displayed. Images and text resize to a fluid width depending on browser window size. Occasionally, some features that do not render or work well on smaller (i.e. mobile) screen devices will be hidden via CSS in order to provide a better browsing experience – however this only occurs as a last resort.
Feedback on the usability and accessibility of this website is welcome and appreciated. If you have any comments, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
