A website is one way to share this research project and the stories of these research participants. Publishing on the web is one way to make research “accessible” by reaching a wider audience. However, being online does not automatically equate to accessibility, especially for web users with disabilities, who might have varying access needs.
To make this website (more) accessible, Nell (she/her/hers) [Patreon] [LinkedIn] provided consulting and accessibility testing. This included evaluating the visual layout of the site on desktop and mobile, testing for screen reader access, and suggesting better practices for cognitive access. Additionally, this site was designed to use high contrast and provide image descriptions. Features such as keyboard focus outlines for navigation and image alt-text are enabled through the AccessibilityPlus plugin for Omeka.
Currently, when viewing item detail pages from the gallery, clicking on images opens up a media viewer that may be inaccessible due to a keyboard trap.
Accessibility is an ongoing project. If there is a way to make this website or its contents more accessible to you, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
