We believe that the Internet should be available and accessible to everyone, and we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance or ability.
To fulfill this promise, we strive to adhere as closely as possible to the AA-level Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible to people with a wide range of disabilities. Following these guidelines helps us provide a website that is accessible to everyone, from the blind to the motor impaired.
This website uses a variety of technologies to make it more accessible. We use an interface that allows people with certain disabilities to customize the website’s UI (user interface) to meet their personal needs. This interface replaces the older fashioned method of providing all users with the same, lesser, but accessible design or user interface.
Here are some of the interface capabilities:
Font handling – users can increase or decrease font size, change font families, adjust spacing, alignment, line height, and more.
Color Handling – Users can select different color contrast profiles such as light or dark.
Text to Speak – it’s often used as an accessibility feature to help people who have trouble reading on-screen text.
Keyboard Navigation – rhodesrealestate.org has implemented features to make keyboard navigation easy and clear for people with visual and other impairments.
Content Highlighting – Users can choose to highlight important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements.
Other options – we give users the ability to change the size of the cursor, enable a virtual keyboard, quick “left navigation” and much more.
