Accessibility Features

In order to make this website more accessible, the Federal Tourism Strategy has employed templates that:

  • are XHTML 1.0 Strict conformant, to improve compatibility with adaptive technologies, handheld devices, browsers and search engines;
  • have been successfully tested on a wide range of adaptive technologies and browser/platform combinations to ensure that Canadians can access web pages regardless of the technology used;
  • include major components, such as the common menu bar, side menu and content area that are properly marked up with headings to simplify navigation with a screen reader;
  • employ a layout and design without tables to simplify screen reader navigation by reducing the structural complexity of web pages;
  • improve accessibility by allowing visitors to configure visual elements to meet their accessibility needs;
  • use scaleable fonts and text-based navigational elements to improve accessibility and simplify navigation using adaptive technologies;
  • provide printer-friendly functionality in the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to make pages more compatible with printers and to prevent the printing of unnecessary page elements; and
  • separate visual presentation from the document structure.
