ACJ’s Accessibility

Even though this website is a rather personal means of expression and experimentation, I still would not like to exclude anyone that is interested to visit. Hence, various measurements are taken to make sure everything is accessible. Note: this does not mean everything (or anything) is useful to you.

Images

Images on this website are smaller than 150 kilobytes, unless noted otherwise. I try to provide relevant alternative texts and descriptions to images when possible. Decorative images are handled by css. Vector illustrations are marked up with svg. (This goes for most of my websites.)

Colors

The background of the body is slightly off-white, and the color of the text is slightly off-black. This should give you enough contrast, but not too much. The background of the website, and the color of the buttons and hyperlinks differ between pages, and change over time. They are selected in such a way it should be clear which parts of the page are interactive.

Access Keys

Various keyboard short-cuts are defined for this website. The exact mechanism to trigger them depends on the Web browser and operating system you’re using. It usually involves use of the Ctrl, Alt, or ⌥ Opt keys.

KeyTarget
1 *First section of current page
2 *Second section of current page
3 *Third section of current page
4 *Fourth section of current page
5 *Fifth section of current page
6 *Sixth section of current page
7 *Sevent section of current page
8 *Eighth section of current page
9 *Ninth section of current page
iMy index (http://acjs.net/index)
t *Top of current page

* These access keys are applied to LINK elements, rather than A elements. This is non-standard, and therefore support is rightfully limited. However, I really like this mechanism, so I’m using it anyway, and I’m really glad at least Firefox supports it. (I wish others would, too.)
