“Accessibility” notes about TimsLaw.com for persons with disabilities

“Accessibility” issues generally

Getting a Format-free Display

For those who prefer a “Format Free” display for reading my articles, I suggest you click the link for “Printable Version” that appears near the top of each article.

The “Printable Version” link presents you with a relatively-unformatted pure text screen. No banner across the top, no sidebars, just plain old text with minimal formatting.

Re-sizeable fonts

I coded with re-sizeable fonts. All the text is re-sizeable to the best of my understanding of coding. I did not put any text in images, No images are used for main navigation. But browser assistance programs will have to deal with tables.

HTML Tables used extensively for layout

I am aware of some potential accessibility issues regarding Tables. I wanted a three-column display for the Front Page that would degrade gracefully on older browsers yet be reasonably accessible. My choices were few, and I think I picked the lesser of three evils. The three evils are Frames, Layers, and Tables. I chose Tables.

I used tables extensively in the banner across the top, to create an effect that looks like an image but is not an image. I then put the main menu in another table underneath the banner. Then, I put the rest of the Content in one table row spanning three columns. I have tried to put Summary tags in each table declaration for accessibility.

TimsLaw.com is a PHP-based website

This is a PHP-coded website now. It used to be straight HTML. But I needed a more robust content management system. I’m sorry for any problems that causes. But actually, the site should appear as straight old HTML almost. I did NOT use layers for layout, just tables, almost the exact same layout scheme as has existed since the website debuted in 2002.
