Accessibility Statement

 

The Nar-Anon Family Groups World Services are committed to compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
 
We believe the Nar-Anon World Services web site (www.nar-anon.org) conforms to the W3C’s “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0”, Level “A”.
 

Meeting Place Accessibility

Whenever possible, meeting sites that are wheelchair accessible are chosen. At the bottom of each meeting page, there is a statement as to whether or not the meeting is held in a wheelchair accessible venue.
 

Web Site Accessibility

  • Simple and Consistent
    Our web site uses simple information architecture with uniform navigation and reliable headings throughout. Content layout and graphical design are consistent on every page.
     
  • "Skip to:" Links
    "Tab" into any page and "Skip to" navigation appears at the top of page. It allows the user to jump to the content area, accessibility page, or footer, and skip the navigation and other header elements, which repeat on every page.
     
  • Main Site Navigation and Sub-Navigation
    The main navigation, located just below the title banner, and sub-navigation, usually accessible on mouse over the main menus, uses lists. Lists make it easier for screen readers to literally read down the list without having to sort through unnecessary code. Lists also allow the users to use the tab key to move from link to link.
     
  • Images with Alternative Text
    Photographs and other relevant images on the site are accompanied by alternative text (the alt attribute of the Image <img /> tag). Alt tags provide a written description of the image, which is accessible to screen readers, and it is visible when the mouse is placed over the image. This is also useful for people who have images turned off on their browser, in which case a description will display where the image used to be.
     
  • Style Sheets
    Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used for content layout and many graphical elements (color, font styles, custom titles and subtitles, etc.) Using CSS for styling keeps our HTML clean, streamlined, easier to maintain, and it downloads faster. Style sheets can be replaced by the user's own styles.

    To turn CSS off, and access the content without any formatting, download and install the Firefox Web Developer toolbar or the Internet Explorer Developer toolbar. With these toolbars turning CSS on and off is just a click away, plus they offer many other helpful tools. If you use a different browser, do an Internet search for Accessibility for your particular browser.
     
  • No Sound? No Images?
    It may not be pretty, but all content is accessible without sound, color, scripts or graphics.
