Options related to accessibility

Use additional accessibility support

Accessibility is important for physically impaired people. In order to make websites more accessible for people you can activate this alternative. In SiteVision it means the system will give you reminders about:

  • link descriptions
  • Image descriptions
  • table description and column/row headings

Use CSS columns

If you do not wish to use layouts build by tables when creating page templates you can use CSS columns. These behave somewhat different then tables, so you need to be more thorough when you create the templates and add content on the pages (follow the measures indicated by the page template.)

Perform W3C validation at publish

Checks if the code validates on the page created at publishing. If the page validates there will be a "green result":

Accessibility test page at publish

Check this box if you would like to activate an automatic accessibility test to be run at each publishing of a page.

The accessibility test will among other things check heading level, if alt and title is used on text and images, tables, that old attributes are not used in the code. The accessibility test works as the link check and you will have a result at publishing of the page. If Ok there will be a "green result":
