The Northern Illinois Special Recreation Association provides year-round recreation activities for people with disabilities. This website was designed to be bright and colorful and to be accessible for visitors with vision and other disabilities. Unique features of this site include:
– Hidden screen-reader-only links to jump to different sections of the page;
– A feature for resizing all text on the page;
– Visual indicators when tabbing through content;
– Symbols and hidden screen-reader-only descriptions to denote links that open in a new window;
– User-friendly form validation messages that detail which validation errors occurred with anchor links to the problem fields.
Accessibility is nothing more than an afterthought for nearly all websites built today. This website celebrates NISRA‘s diverse community and provides a user-friendly experience for everyone regardless of disabilities.
