Accessibility standards help Web content developers identify and address accessibility issues.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) (http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10) from the W3C was the first major effort to establish guidelines for accessible design. The standard consists of fourteen guidelines, each with three checkpoint levels for Web developers to meet. Priority One checkpoints ensure that the page itself is accessible. Priority Two checkpoints ensure that certain groups will be able to access information on the Web page. Priority 3 checkpoints ensure that all content on the page is completely accessible.
We have made an effort to meet Priority 1 and Priority 2 for every website developed and maintained by IPC.
Access keys enable a user to jump to specific links within a document by using certain key combinations. Windows users can use Alt + Access key and Macintosh users can use Control + Access Key. The following access keys are used throughout ipcc.ca:
- Access Key 1 – Home
- Access Key 2 – Education Centre
