Access for People with Disabilities
to the Disability Resources Monthly (DRM) Guide to Disability
Resources on the Internet. Our volunteers have tried to design
this web site to meet the needs of visitors with disabilities,
including those who use voice or large print software and/or
text browsers. This page has six short sections:
- Aside from
our "home page" (which is available in both graphic
and text-only formats), we have avoided the use of frames, complex
elements which may be incompatible with adaptive software and
text-only browsers. We have also tried to include "alternative
text tags" on all graphics.
Over the Masthead
- All of our
pages (except this one and the home page) begin with a standard
masthead. The masthead is designed to help visitors identify
where they are on our site, and to help them jump quickly to
other sections or pages. If you are familiar with html programming,
you may note that the masthead is in a "table" format,
which may be inaccessible with some applications. However, we
have designed each page so that you can jump over the masthead
if you wish.
- Every page
(except the home page and this page) begins with a small graphic
pointer whose alternative text tag says "jump to listings."
It looks like this: .
This pointer is the first item you will encounter on each page,
and it is followed by text links to the main sections of our
web site (Home, Subjects, States, etc.). Then, inside the masthead
table, you will generally find:
- a graphic
image of the disabilityresources.org logo (clicking on it will
take you back to the home page)
- the name
of the section you are in (e.g., The DRM WebWatcher) and the
name of the specific page in that section that your are on (e.g.,
Blindness and Visual Impairments)
- links to
take you elsewhere in the current section; for example, in The
DRM WebWatcher there will be a link to each letter of the alphabet,
and in The DRM Regional Resource Directory there will be a link
back to the list of all of the states.
- If you
wish to skip this preliminary material and go right to the text
or links, simply click (or press enter) on the graphic pointer
or the alternative text tag link that says "jump to listings."
To see how this
works, select the link below. When the new page loads, try clicking
on the pointer ()
at the top. To return, use the back button or command on your
with low vision who are using graphic browsers can usually enlarge
the size of the print and change the print/background contrast
by changing the settings on their browsers.
- We know
we're not perfect. If you experience any difficulty using this
site, or if you have any suggestions to improve it,
