Brighton, United Kingdom, January 21, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Stannah Stairlifts has launched its brand new interactive website www.stannahstairlifts.co.uk. The stylishly re-designed site has impressively been awarded the Royal National Institute for the Blind seal of approval – the RNIB See it Right Accessible Websites logo.
When a website displays an RNIB See it Right logo, it shows that the site has been carefully checked, assessed and independently verified to be sure that it meets a high level of web accessibility. Visitors to the site will be presented with easy-to-view video testimonials which give first-hand accounts of how Stannah Stairlifts have changed people’s lives.
Further to this, customers will find the site navigation hugely improved; visitors are able to reach all corners of the website by following links that are keyboard navigable. Meaning even if someone has impaired mobility or sight, they are able to use the keyboard tab key or switch device to move from link to link, knowing that no parts of the site are "hidden" behind links that can only be displayed by mouse action.
So with ease of navigation site users can browse the stairlift comparison guide; take note of the handy checklist to ensure they make the correct decisions when buying a stairlift; access expert advice; and search for their nearest showroom where they can take a test ride on a range of Stannah stairlifts with no obligation to buy. The online shop means that customers are even able to pay their deposit online to ensure that the buying process is as simple and convenient as possible if customers decide to take that next step.
Below is an outline of what a visitor can expect to be able to do on the Stannah Stairlifts website no matter what their browser settings or reading needs might be.
Page titles are different on each unique page, and give a good indication about its content. This will help keep track of where visitors are in the website, and make it possible to distinguish between pages when you have more than one window or tab open.
Headings are relevant and provided in a logical order so that visitors can use them to get an overview of the page. For screen reader users, this means that they may be able to use screen reader functions to jump from heading to heading, or have a list of all headings displayed, so that they can decide which one is of most interest, and then go straight to it.
All text is resizable, so if it is too small or large for easy reading, you can use your browser setting to display it at the size you prefer.
Colours have been chosen to provide good contrast between text and its background, and avoid combinations that are known to cause difficulties for people with colour blindness.
Completing forms is made easy because the information needed to complete each input box is clear and well positioned:
