Our Commitment To Accessibility

The Grumbles Electric Company is commited to making this web site as accessibile to all individuals as is reasonably possible.

Design Standards

Straightforward Design - Our website uses simple information architecture, organized navigation and reliable headings throughout to provide consistency to the user and an easy way to navigate back to the home page regardless of location.

Images With Alternative Text - This text provides further detail for an image or destination of a hyperlinked image. It is commonly called an ALT tag, and they are accessible to screen readers, and in some browsers visible when the mouse cursor is placed over the image. They may also provide a description of graphics for people who have images turned off on their browser, or use text based browsers.

The Navigation - The main navigation, located just below the title banner, uses lists. Lists make it easier for screen readers to literally read down the list without having to sort through unnecessary code. Lists also allow the users to use the tab key to move from link to link.

Style Sheets - Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) centralize the style information for the website. Using CSS allows for greater flexibility when a style change is needed to accommodate a specific disability. It also keeps the code clean and is faster to download.

Layout - The design was built to accommodate the vast majority of visitors. Our website is best viewed at 1024 x 768 resolution, which was selected as it accommodates the majority of our visitors.

Hypertext Links - Text is specifically chosen to make sense when read out of context, so all users know where they are going when they select a link.

Access keys- Access keys are keyboard shortcuts that help you get around the site. This site DOES NOT USE ACCESS KEYS due to the fact it has been found that they can interfere with the normal operation of some screen readers.

Validation

Our design work is checked using tools, checklists, and guidelines at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG These pages validate CSS2.1, XHTML1.0 Strict, section 508, and WAI priorities 1 and 2. These pages are also designed in accordance with the Viewable With Any Browser campaign, and evaluated using the Functional Accessibility Evaluator provided by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
