African Union of the Blind (AFUB) takes information accessibility very seriously. In designing the website, we have taken every possible measure to make our site a living example of that. Below is a brief on some of those measures:
1. All major sections of the site are clearly marked with headings which you can move using the move to heading feature of your screen reader, the letter H in Jaws and NVDA.
2. All sections of the page are marked with Aria landmarks that can be jumped to easily by screen readers that support this feature. In jaws and NVDA it's the ; key.
3. All pages have a special link to move to the main section of the page labeled "skip to content".
4. All photos and graphics are clearly labeled using the alt attribute which is read when you land on that photo with your screen reader.
5. Low vision users can use the page style function found in each page to contrast colors in the way that suit them best. Several options are available.
6. Those users can also utilize the text size function to increase or decrease text size. Appropriate controls are also located on each page.
7. We have used standard techniques and web accessibility practices in the design, where tables were used to represent graphs and other graphics and the layout was done using CSS.
