Accessibility Statement

This is the official accessibility statement for the advanceddisplays.ie website. If you have any questions or comments about the accessibility of this site, please feel free to contact us.

Access Keys

Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows and Linux, it is usually done by pressing ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key. In some of the browsers (e.g. Mozilla) it is enough to press the key combination, in others you must press Enter after that. There are also more complicated combinations. For example, in Opera 7 you have to press Shift + Esc and then use the access key.

The home page and all archives define the following access keys:

Access key 1
Home page
Access key 2
Skip navigation (go directly to main content)
Access key 9

Links

  3. Link text is never duplicated; two links with the same link text always point to the same address.
  4. There are no "javascript:" pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off.
  5. There are no links that open new windows without warning.

Images

  1. All content images used include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative images include empty ALT attributes.

Visual Design

This site uses valid CSS for visual layout.

  1. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
  2. A separate stylesheet is applied when printing the pages.
