In order to make this site more accessible, CHIN has employed templates which:
- are XHTML 1.0 Strict conformant, to improve compatibility with adaptive technologies, handheld devices, browsers and search engines;
- include major components, such as the common menu bar, side menu, and content area that are properly marked up with headings to simplify navigation with a screen reader;
- employ table-less layout and design to simplify screen reader navigation by reducing the structural complexity of Web pages;
- improve accessibility by allowing visitors to configure visual elements to meet their accessibility needs;
- use scaleable fonts and text-based navigational elements to improve accessibility and simplify navigation using adaptive technologies;
- provide printer-friendly functionality in the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to render pages more compatible with printers and to prevent printing unnecessary page elements;
- separate visual presentation from the document structure;
- display the title value when a link gains keyboard focus; and
- employ skip navigation links at the beginning of the page for quickly moving to the content or the institutional links. These skip navigation links become visible when selected using a keyboard or other alternate input device.
