Web Accessibility at ND’s Show Some Skin: Ensuring an Inclusive Experience

At ND’s Show Some Skin, we are dedicated to providing a website that is accessible to all users, regardless of their abilities or the technologies they rely on. We understand the importance of inclusivity and are committed to ensuring a seamless online experience for everyone, including those who use assistive technologies such as screen readers, screen enlargement software, and alternative keyboard input devices.

Ongoing Commitment and Adherence to Standards

Our commitment to web accessibility is an ongoing effort. We adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1, internationally recognized standards that provide comprehensive recommendations for making digital content accessible. As we introduce new pages and functionalities to our website, we rigorously check designs, code, and content entry practices against these standards.

Continuous Testing and Remediation

Ensuring accessibility is a dynamic process, and we continuously test our content and features for WCAG 2.1 Level AA compliance. Our team employs industry-standard tools such as the Accessibility Checker WordPress Plugin, color contrast analyzers, keyboard-only navigation techniques, and Flesch-Kincaid readability tests to identify and address any accessibility issues promptly.

Key Accessibility Features on Our Website

To enhance accessibility, we have implemented various features on our website:

  1. Mobile-Responsive Design: Our website includes a mobile-responsive version with appropriately sized tap-targets to ensure a seamless experience on various devices.
  2. Color Contrast Considerations: We have intentionally selected brand colors that meet AAA requirements for color contrast, even for small text.
  3. Language Declaration: Our website declares its language in the header, promoting a better understanding for users and assistive technologies.
  4. Tab and Window Opening Warning: Users are provided with a warning before links open in a new tab or window, ensuring a predictable browsing experience.

Areas of Improvement

While we have made significant strides, we acknowledge that there is always room for improvement. We are actively working on enhancing the following areas:

  1. Structural Markup: We are implementing structural markup to clearly indicate expected section containers, headings, lists, and buttons, making our content more understandable and accessible across devices.
  2. Alternative Text for Images: All images and non-text elements will be accompanied by alternative text to ensure users relying on screen readers receive meaningful information.
  3. Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA): We are incorporating ARIA attributes to provide screen-reader-only text for links, buttons, icons, or images that require additional context for understanding.

Your Feedback Matters

Our commitment extends beyond complianceā€”it is about creating a welcoming and enjoyable experience for everyone. While we strive to make our information accessible, we recognize the limitations in guaranteeing the accessibility of third-party websites to which we may link.
