Accessibility

More features

Accessibility on the web means ensuring content is viewable by all visitors, regardless of the device or browser they are using. It also means optimising content for users with disabilities. Users who are blind, partially sighted, or dyslexic may require a screen reader to read the text for them.

Contensis ensures your content is accessible by alerting users when they make mistakes or omissions. The CMS also creates valid and clean HTML – it even alters invalid content when it is imported from other sources. It prompts you to add alt tags and descriptions to non-text content so screen readers can describe them.

Contensis has a range of optional tools which you can use to further enhance the accessibility of your website, ensuring that it will be accessible to as many users as possible. You may be interested in the quality assurance module.

Alternative ways to present content for accessibility

Stylesheet switcher

A stylesheet switcher helps users who find certain colour contrasts or font sizes a challenge.

The stylesheet switcher offers alternative versions of the stylesheet with different layouts, text sizes, and colour schemes. Users of your website or intranet can pick an appropriate format. A user with vision problems can choose a version with larger text, fewer graphics, and a layout that suits magnification.

Font-size selector

By adding the font-size selector to a website you allow visitors to set the size of the text to their preference. This provides a quick and intuitive method of adjusting the text size for users with poor vision without the need for special tools.

Text-only button

The text-only button provides the user with a fast loading page with text rendered in a high contrast format. This feature differs from the stylesheet switcher in that the formatting is removed as well as any images. The text-only version is not only beneficial for users that require high contrast colours on fonts, it is also great for viewing web pages on legacy devices.
