ACCESSIBILITY

The Transport & Logistics Industry Skills Council website strives to support all visitors irrespective of their physical limitations (e.g. vision, hearing, mobility, literacy, or cognitive impairment), environmental limitations (e.g. noise), and/or technical limitations (e.g. slow modems, older browser versions, low resolution displays, and monochrome monitors).

The accessibility limitations will vary depending on the target audience. Websites must be made with the target audience in mind, so that the pages are accessible to them.

Navigation

A text-only site map provides links to all the main areas and sub-areas of the site in a more accessible format.

Links

If an image is used for any link, techniques are used to keep the text within the code so they are still text-friendly for screen readers, text-based browsers and for those who browse with styles sheets turned off.

All links are a coloured and/or underlined font so they are easily distinguished from regular text and headlines that are not clickable.

Images

A text description has been added to each image within and/or tags. This will assist screen readers and users who browse the internet with images off.

Validation

The TLISC site is continually maintained to keep up-to-date with accessibility standards via validator.w3.org

Tools on the Web

Some tools online make it easier for people with disabilities to view and navigate web content.

These include:

  • Mozilla/Firefox Accessibility Extension
  • Internet Explorer Web Accessibility Toolbar
  • Accessibility Favelets
