Accessibility Statement

I tried to build the site predictable and accessible as much as possible by keeping the following rules:

  • The meaning of link text is clear and understandable without its context.
  • All graphic images are provided with their equivalent alternative text so people who cannot perceive the image due to various reasons still can access the core function of the image.
  • The link target is not changed unexpectedly when you select to follow the link.
  • The link shows itself clearly by its explicit visual cue when it receives a focus whether it is a text or a graphic image.
  • All the content can be translated into meaningful and organized text stream with or without style sheets.
  • All meaningful texts can be clearly distinguished from their background with the help of enough color contrast.
  • All texts are designed to be scalable for the people with low visibility.
  • Users with non-pointing device (eg. keyboard, screen reader, braille reader, voice commander) can access the most of functions in the site.
  • Content layout can be flexible and adaptable to the user’s various environment including the mobile or low resolution screen.
  • There is no unexpected new window where people can be annoyed or strayed.
  • There is no surprising sound or music played without any prior notice.
  • Nearly every page is designed according to current web standards including XHTML, CSS, and DOM.
  • I avoided using complex nested tables to represent grid-like content. Instead I tried to adopt CSS positioning techniques as much as possible.
  • There is no uncontrollable severely blinking, flashing or fast-moving objects which can be very distracting for non-disabled people and can be harmful for some group of disabled people.
  • If the interface itself is not clearly predictable or understandable, I tried to put additional hints utilizing very general and easy HTML attribute, title.

Due to my ignorance and lack of knowledge in so called “hack” technology, some users with old, non-standard compliant browsers (such as Internet Explorer 6) might find some awkward visual elements. I feel sorry about this inconvenience. I courteously advise them to upgrade to the standard compliant modern browser. Although I made all my efforts to develop the site most accessible ever, there must be lots of accessibility flaws. Please kindly understand that I could not solve a couple of obstructive Javascript problems because I do not have enough skills to fix them. Your feedback and technical comments are always welcomed.
