Lesson 5. Developing a Page Template > Enhancing Accessibility for the Site

Enhancing Accessibility for the Site

You have implemented some accessibility features to the Jade Valley Web site by adding alt descriptions for a number of images. In this task, you will add an accessibility feature that will benefit users with screen readers.

Screen readers are browsers that read page contents aloud, so that users with visual impairments can access Web content. Screen readers start at the beginning of the page and work their way down, which creates a problem for pages with layouts like ours, which begin every page with an identical navigation bar and banner. This means that screen readers will read the navigation bar, along with all of its hotspots, over and over again throughout the site.
