We want everyone who visits the Jewish Coffee House website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.
What are we doing?
To help us make the Jewish Coffee House website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.
These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.
The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Jewish Coffee House website.
How are we doing?
We’ve worked hard on the Jewish Coffee House website and believe we’ve achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility.
We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please
get in touch.
About our site
Our site is built with WordPress using the Buzz theme, an Accessibility Compliant theme by Pojo.
The theme comes with an accessibility button that can be seen on all of our pages. It gives options for change of contrast, font size and type changes and underlining links.
The theme includes “Skip” links, When you open a page, the first time you press tab, you will encounter this link.
The one accessibility issue that we have encountered with the Pojo theme is that the automatic headings used in the footer and sidebar are set to h5, but they may be pulling in content under that heading which is automatically set to h2 or h3. A similar issue exists on the category pages. We are working to find a solution to this problem.
Podcasts: Our site is based on podcasts. The podcasts reside on soundcloud and are linked to from our pages. In order for our podcasts to meet accessibility standards, each series is hosted on Youtube as well, where we offer closed captions for the hearing impaired and where the player is accessible.
Images: All images have alternative content unless adding the alternative content would be redundant.
We are currently running site tests using the screen readers NVDA and Chromvox.
