    WCAG 2.1

    We are steadfast in our belief that the internet should be accessible to all, and we are dedicated to ensuring that our website is inclusive to the widest possible audience, regardless of ability.

    To achieve this, we strive to adhere closely to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines outline methods for making web content accessible to individuals with diverse disabilities, including but not limited to blindness, motor impairments, visual impairment, and cognitive disabilities.

    Our website incorporates various technologies designed to maximize accessibility at all times. We employ an accessibility interface allowing users with specific disabilities to customize the website's user interface (UI) to suit their individual needs.

    Furthermore, we utilize an AI-powered application that operates in the background, continuously optimizing accessibility. This application enhances the website's HTML, adjusts functionality for screen-readers utilized by blind users, and tailors keyboard functions for those with motor impairments.

    In addition to technological solutions, we have a dedicated staff member to monitor and assess the functionality of these tools. This individual conducts manual reviews to ensure that our website consistently meets WCAG 2.1 (AA) guidelines.

    Screen-reader/keyboard navigation

    Our website incorporates the ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) attributes and implements various behavioral modifications to enhance accessibility for blind users using screen readers. Upon arrival, screen-reader users are promptly invited to activate the Screen-Reader Profile, facilitating a more navigable and enjoyable experience on our site. Below are key features that support screen-reader accessibility:

    Screen-reader Optimization: Our site undergoes a comprehensive analysis to ensure it remains accessible, even after updates. This includes providing screen-readers with essential data through ARIA attributes, such as accurate form labels, descriptions for actionable icons (like social media, search, and cart icons), guidance for form validation, and roles for elements like buttons, menus, and dialogues.

    We also scan all website images, supplying meaningful, image-recognition-based ALT text descriptions for undetailed images and extracting text from images using OCR technology. Screen-reader users can activate adjustments at any time by pressing Alt+1 and are automatically prompted to switch to Screen-reader mode upon entering the site.

    These enhancements are designed to work seamlessly with leading screen readers, including JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack.

    Keyboard Navigation Optimization: Our site's HTML is fine-tuned, and JavaScript is employed to ensure full keyboard navigability. This includes straightforward navigation using the Tab and Shift+Tab keys, dropdown operation via arrow keys, closing them with Esc, activating buttons and links with the Enter key, and navigating as well as filling in radio and checkbox elements using arrow keys, Spacebar, or Enter.

    Keyboard users can access content-skip menus at any time with Alt+2 or as the first element when navigating by keyboard. Our process also ensures that keyboard focus shifts to popups when they are triggered, preventing focus from escaping.

    Additionally, shortcuts like “M” for menus, “H” for headings, “F” for forms, “B” for buttons, and “G” for graphics help users quickly jump to specific site elements.

    These efforts demonstrate our commitment to ensuring our website is fully accessible and user-friendly for individuals relying on screen-readers and keyboard navigation, thereby enhancing their overall experience on our site.

    Our website supports various disability profiles to ensure an accessible and user-friendly experience for everyone:

    • Epilepsy Safe Profile: Designed for individuals with epilepsy, this profile eliminates the risk of seizures by removing flashing or blinking animations and avoiding unsafe color combinations, ensuring a safer browsing experience.
    • Vision Impaired Profile: Tailored for users with visual impairments, including conditions like degrading eyesight, tunnel vision, cataracts, glaucoma, and more. This profile modifies the website's visual aspects to improve accessibility for those with various vision impairments.
    • Cognitive Disability Profile: This profile introduces assistive features to support users with cognitive disabilities, such as autism, dyslexia, CVA (Cerebrovascular Accident), and others, helping them focus on essential website elements more effectively.
    • ADHD Friendly Profile: Designed to minimize distractions and noise, this profile aids individuals with ADHD and neurodevelopmental disorders in browsing, reading, and concentrating on the critical elements of the website with greater ease.
    • Blind Users Profile (Screen-readers): Specifically adjusted for compatibility with screen-readers like JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, and TalkBack, this profile ensures that blind users or those with severe visual impairments can navigate the website effectively. Screen-readers, installed on the user's computer, work seamlessly with our site.
    • Keyboard Navigation Profile (Motor-Impaired): Enables users with motor impairments to navigate the website using keyboard controls, such as Tab, Shift+Tab, and the Enter keys. It includes shortcuts like “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) for easy access to specific elements.

    These profiles exemplify our commitment to making our website accessible and inclusive, ensuring all users can access content and navigate our site efficiently.

    Additional Available Modifications 

    1. Font Customization: Users have the flexibility to modify the font by enlarging or reducing its size, changing the font type, adjusting the letter spacing, text alignment, and line height for better readability.
    2. Color Adjustment Options: Users can choose from various color contrast profiles, including light, dark, inverted, and monochrome. There’s also the option to alter the color schemes of headings, text, and backgrounds, with more than seven color choices available.
    3. Stopping Animations: To accommodate users with epilepsy, our site includes a feature to halt all active animations with a simple click. This applies to videos, GIFs, and CSS flashing transitions, ensuring a safer browsing experience.
    4. Content Highlighting: This feature allows users to accentuate key website elements such as links and titles. Additionally, there's an option to highlight only the elements that are focused or hovered over, aiding in navigation and comprehension.
    5. Audio Muting: Recognizing that users with hearing aids may encounter discomfort from automatic audio playback, our site offers a quick mute option to silence the site entirely.
    6. Support for Cognitive Disorders: Our website integrates a search function that connects to Wikipedia and Wiktionary. This aids individuals with cognitive disorders in understanding phrases, acronyms, slang, and more, enhancing their browsing experience.
    7. Extended Accessibility Features: We provide additional tools to improve site interaction, including the ability to alter the cursor's color and size, activate a printing-friendly mode, employ a virtual keyboard, and other helpful functions.

    Browser Capability

To achieve this, we've dedicated considerable effort to ensure compatibility with all major platforms. This includes support for popular browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera, and Microsoft Edge, as well as widely-used screen readers such as JAWS and NVDA, catering to both Windows and Mac users.
