Links

Whenever possible, links are written to make sense when read out of context. (Many browsers can extract the list of links on a page, allowing users to browse the links separately from the page. Browsers that include this functionality include the following: JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera.)

Images

All content images include descriptive ALT text to aid users of non-visual browsers.

Visual design

alliedbuilders.com uses relative font sizes throughout the site. This means that the text on the site can made larger or smaller in many browsers by changing the browser’s text size settings. For example, if you are using Internet Explorer, you can make the default text size larger under the View menu by selecting Text Size, Larger (or Largest).

If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets, the content of each page is still readable.
