Our designer's philosophy is that our web site should be easy for anyone to use, whatever their method of internet access.
The Carved Tree web site has been designed using CSS. No tables or frames of any kind have been used in the design of this web site. Our style sheets should accommodate any browser, including those used by mobile devices.
All text has a relative font size which means you can re-size the text at any time if you want to.
All pages on this site are WCAG AA approved, meeting all Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints. In some areas the web site will meet Priority 3 checkpoints, but saying that it is nearly impossible to produce a web site that is 100% accessible.
All pages on this site validated as strict XHTML 1.0, and valid CSS 2.1
All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main headings, H2 tags for sub-headings and H3 tags for sub-sub-headings.
For those using screen readers we offer a skip link as a shortcut for users who want to skip the content and go straight to the navigation. Link text is written to make sense out of context. Many links have title attributes to describe the links in greater detail. All photographs and graphics on the site have Alt attributes to describe what they are or what they do. Links open in the same window with the exception of links to PDF and Word documents – which open in new windows.
We only use one access key that is for our site map. Apart from that we don't use access keys. To explain why not, we recommend that you read Nomensa's article.
