There is a site map of antixlabs.com that may help with navigation around the site.
Many browsers now allow you to change the font size in the webpage by zooming in or out on the page. This capability is generally found on the browser's View menu item. Some browsers (or browser versions) allow you to zoom the font size only or set the font size. Some allow you to select "Actual Size" or "Reset" to accept the web page settings. The general case is :
Antix has included and populated descriptive placeholders (alt attributes) to all images and will include this written description of the image in its text only site. Content should be usable/accessible with images “off” (disabled).
As a general rule we do not open a link in a new window, allowing you instead to use your browser back and forward keys. You will be advised if a link does open in a new browser window.
Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target.
Links are written to make sense out of context.
The first link in every document is a "SkipNav"; it is to skip directly to what is considered the main section of the page (the content).
URLs are permanent whenever possible.
As with links, above, Portable Document Format, (PDF) files will be opened in the same window. You will be advised if a PDF does open in a new browser window. If you would like further information regarding reading a PDF document with a screen reader then please go to Adobe's Accessibility web page.
In general we do not use pop-up windows. If and where we do, we will notify you first.
Antix site(s) use cascading style sheets for visual layout, and this website uses the XTHML 1.0 Transitional DOCTYPE.
Antix site(s) use a combination of fixed and relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers, but we are moving towards using fixed fonts and modern browsers now allow better zooming and control.
If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
Any information conveyed through the use of color is also available without color (i.e. text based).
If your browser is unable to download Antix’ style sheet then it will use the browser’s default style sheet.
You can use your own style sheets as follows:
The following URLs will comply with the Antix Accessibility Statement: developer.antixlabs.com, certification.antixlabs.com, warehouse.antixlabs.com.
Search: A search facility will be added to the site to aid navigation and help you find the content that you want to find.
Text Only Site: Antix will also be implementing an alternate text only site for www.antixlabs.com. The text only site will have identical text content to the graphic rich site.
Print Style Sheet: We will deploy a print stylesheet so that you can print out only the relevant information.
