Compliance with standards
All pages on this site are written in proper HTML5 code. Writing proper code ensures proper work of assistive technologies used by people with disabilities (such as screen readers for use by the blind).
The site was designed in contrasting colors that allow optimal use for the visually impaired and color blind.
The content on the website is semantic. Contains headings, information tables, lists, paragraphs, standard links, form controls and image descriptions if they are meaningful.
The site has content areas in frames that are displayed from other sites. These areas are defined in title highways. Their accessibility, however, depends on the hosting site. For example – Facebook in the side area of the content pages.
The forms on the site are accessible to screen readers and keyboard users.
The display on the website
