Darakht-e Danesh is committed to ensuring that our site and materials are accessible for everyone, including those with visual, hearing and motor impairments. We are continually improving the design of our site to improve user experience and apply relevant accessibility standards.
We endeavour to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1). As part of this effort, we ensure that our website is compatible with accessibility tools such as screen readers, and adhere to the principles of universal design. It is not always possible to meet accessibility standards in all content of the website, but we commit to providing alternate formats when required.
Web pages include three different areas when Cascading Styles Sheets (CSS) are not applied to a document. These three areas are also used when using a screen reader. Read the three areas in order:
- A header bar
- A main content area
- A footer
- All images on this website should have alternative text descriptions.
- Our content is generally usable or accessible without images.
- We do our best to have links written so that they make sense out of context. If this is not possible, we add a title attribute or other type of search aid to create context.
- All form controls are appropriately and clearly labelled.
- This site uses only relative font sizes. These are compatible with the user-chosen "text size" option in visual browsers.
- If your browser does not support custom CSS at all, the content of each page is still readable.
- Any information conveyed with colour is also available without colour (i.e. text based).
- This site does not have a “resize” widget. However, all the tools and functions provided by a widget like this are already built into all major browsers. Here are key options:
- Press Ctrl & + to increase the page size.
- Press Ctrl & - to decrease the page size.
- Press Ctrl & 0 (zero) to reset the page size to the web page's default size.
- NVDA a free, open-source screen reader (Windows)
- System Access (Windows)
- JAWS (Windows)
- VoiceOver (Mac)
- Orca (Linux)
