Project-RAY site is designed using standard accessibility features defined by the W3C working group. Those features are supported by different web browsers and provide support for blind people using screen readers and for people with low vision.
Using web browser of your choice, you can choose the View menu, Text Size option to change text size. (The keyboard shortcut is Alt-V, X). Other browsers are likely to have the same or similar options.
To zoom in and out on the entire page, not just the text, hold down the Ctrl key and use the plus (+) and minus (-) keys, or rotate the mouse wheel if you have one on your mouse.
For the Macintosh, use the cmd key and + or - to quickly change the font size.
Web site page structure
This Web site is designed with consistency in mind. Once you have learnt your way around a single page, you should find that most other pages can be accessed and interrogated in a similar fashion.
Points of consistency:
- All Project-RAY Web site pages have a navigation menu at the top of the document and choosing one of the links from this will take you into that area of the Web site.
- The menu option for USERS provides access to personal web page of our customers. Those pages are protected by user ID and password and available to registered owners of the RAY device and their family members.
- The RESSELER section is available for use by our reseller network and provides administrative tools to manage and support their customers over the web.
- The title of each page, which can be read by most screen readers, and which appears in the colored bar at the top of the browser window, describes the page, helping you know where in the Web site you are.
- All photographs and pictures of relevance have been given an appropriate alternative text description. Your screen reader can read these out, and moving the mouse over the picture can popup this description. Unimportant images have an empty text description so that your screenreader will not read these out to you.
A few of the resources we have drawn on making this Web site more accessible are:
- RNIB Web accessibility help section. The UK's Royal National Institute of the Blind Web site has a strong Accessibility help section.
- NFB Web accessibility area. The National Federation of the Blind in the US has a very good accessibility checklist, part of their strong certification program.
Project-RAY is always interested in improving the accessibility of this Web site. If you have suggestions on how to do this for your particular setup, please send us your feedback so we can continue to improve this website.
