Accessibility Features of the Diversity in Broadcasting Section of the CAB Website
The CAB has adapted the principles of website accessibility developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and found in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0). Adapted to both HTML and PDF versions of documents, these guidelines include a range of accessibility features:
- For non-text content used to convey information, text alternatives convey the same information, unless the non-text content is multimedia, live audio-only or live video-only (Guideline 1.1.1)
- Text or diagrams, and their background have a luminosity ratio of at least 5:1 (Guideline 1.4.1)
- All functionality of the content is operable in a non time-dependent manner through a keyboard interface (Guideline 2.1.2)
- More than one way is available to locate content within a set of delivery units where content is not the result of, or a step in a process or task (Guideline 2.4.2)
- Titles, headings and labels are descriptive (Guideline 2.4.6)
The CAB is continuing to implement WCAG 2.0 Guidelines for the website, in order to ensure it is as broadly inclusive as possible.
The CAB intends to continue to move forward towards providing an inclusive website and to provide content that is accessible to the widest audience possible.
