Access Features

Access Instructions for Users with Disabilities
The Media Access Group at WGBH is committed to ensuring that its site is accessible to all users. This Web site conforms to existing recommendations and standards and has been tested with various assistive technologies. If you encounter a problem accessing this site, or if you would like to provide feedback, please Contact us.

Support for W3C Recommendations and Section 508 Standards
During the development process, our authors followed the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 to ensure that the site would be accessible.

Alt-text Tags and D-links
All images on this site are accompanied by a brief alt-text tag which identifies the image or its function. If you are using a graphic browser, alt-text tags are visible only if the browser's automatic image-loading feature is turned off.

Hyperlinks
All text hyperlinks are written so that they make sense when read out of context.

Scripting
Parts of the Media Access Group site utilize JavaScript. In every instance, device-independent event handlers have been implemented so that use of the mouse is not required. Additionally, all content and functionality are available even if scripting has been disabled in the browser.

Tables
Some layout tables are used on this site. However, all content makes sense when the page is linearized. Where tables are used for the presentation of data, table cells are associated with headers to facilitate navigation with screen readers. Also, each data table has a summary which provides additional information about the table's contents.
