Accessibility For All at Brian Hoskins Ford in Coatesville, PA!

At Brian Hoskins Ford in Coatesville, we believe that the internet should be accessible to everyone. That's why we're committed to providing our customers with a website that is fully accessible to the widest audience, regardless of circumstance or ability.

To fulfill this promise, we aim to adhere as closely as possible to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us provide a site that is accessible to people of all backgrounds.*

How We Make Our Website More Accessible

At Brian Hoskins Ford, our website utilizes an interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website's UI (user interface) and design it to 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 capabilities of our interface:

Font Handling - Users can increase and decrease its size, change its family (type), adjust spacing, alignment, line height, and more.

 

Color Handling - Users can select various color contrast profiles such as light, dark, inverted and monochrome. Additionally, users can swap color schemes of titles, texts, and backgrounds, with over 7 different coloring options.

Animations - Users can stop all running animations in an instant, at the click of a button. Those animations include videos, GIFs and CSS flashing transitions.

Content Highlighting - Users can choose to emphasize important elements such as links and titles. They can also choose to highlight focused or hovered elements specifically.

Audio Muting - Users with hearing devices may experience headaches or other issues due to automatic audio playing. This option lets users mute the entire website instantly.

Cognitive Disorders - We utilize a search engine that is linked to Wikipedia and Wiktionary, allowing people with cognitive disorders to decipher meanings of phrases, initials, slang, and others.

Screen-Reader Optimization - AI runs in the background and learns the website's components top to bottom, thereby providing screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, it will provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (pop-ups), and others. Additionally, the AI scans all of the website's images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, click the Alt+1 keyboard combination.

Keyboard Navigation Optimization - AI adjusts the website's HTML, as well as adding various behaviors using JavaScript code to make the website fully operable by a keyboard. This includes the ability to navigate the entire site using the TAB and SHIFT+TAB keys, operate dropdowns with the arrow keys, close them with ESC, trigger buttons and links using the Enter key, navigate between radio and checkbox elements using the arrow keys, fill them in with the Spacebar or Enter key, and more. Additionally, keyboard users will find quick-navigation and content-skip menus (available at any time by clicking Alt+1). The AI will also handle triggered popups by moving the keyboard focus towards them as soon as they appear, and It'll not let the focus drift outside of it, for best orientation.

Browser and Assistive Technology Compatibility - We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible including: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera, Microsoft Edge and I.E 11 or above, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.

Other Options - We provide users the option to change cursor color and sizing, use a printing mode, enable a virtual keyboard and much more.. Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level every 24 hours. This AI engine remediates the website's HTML issues, as well as functionality and behavior, to the use of blind people that are using screen readers, and the motor impaired that are using a keyboard to operate websites.
