This site has existed since August 2006. It should be easy for anyone to use, whatever their method of internet access.
www.glasgowsciencecentre.org has been developed using standards compliant HTML and CSS. No frames have been used in the design of this website. Tables have been used to show tabular data, but never used for layout purposes.
Our style sheets should accommodate any browser, however the site is optimised for browsers that adhere to the W3C web standards.
All text has a relative font size which means that you may resize the text at any time if you want to.
All templates on this site are WCAG AA approved, meeting all Priority 1 and 2 checkpoints. All templates on this site use structured semantic markup and validate as HTML transitional 4.01.
For those using screen readers there is the option to skip past the navigation to the content on each page. Link text is written to make sense out of context. Many links have title attributes to describe the links in greater detail. Links open in the same window with the exception of links to PDF and Word documents, and links to external sites – which open in new windows.
We don't use access keys. To explain why not, we recommend that you read Nomensa's article.
If you experience any kind of problem when using this website or you have any other feedback we'll be glad to hear from you. Please contact our Site Editorial Team or write to: Web Editor, Glasgow Science Centre, 50 Pacific Quay, Glasgow G51 1EA.
