NTN Canada Offers Enhanced Website Accessibility and Functionality for All Users


17 May 2021 - Toronto - Corporate - News

Website Accessibility

NTN Canada’s web site has been redesigned to meet new guidelines issued by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), making its website platform available to, and usable by, all users, including those with disabilities.

The guidelines issued by the WAI are designed to keep the aesthetic nature of the website content intact, while ensuring that the information is readily accessible to persons with visual and other disabilities. The implemented guidelines are of particular benefit to visually impaired computer users who rely on screen reader voice output or magnification technology and who, like others, rely on a keyboard instead of a mouse for computer navigation.

The new accessibility features on the NTN Canada website include:

  • Use of sufficient contrast between foreground and background colours.
  • Text elements that can be resized.
  • Links that have visible focus styles to assist those only using a keyboard, to help maintain their orientation.
  • Links that do what they say or have additional, non-visible, information that can be read by screen reading devices.
  • Correct use of headings, with a logical outline to assist those using screen reading devices.
  • Correct use of tables to display appropriate tabular information, with headings and captions to assist those using screen reading devices.
  • Use of cascading style sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of our website, keeping the presentation separated from the structure assists those using screen reading devices.

NTN is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability, and in doing so, adhere to internationally accepted guidelines and standards. NTN will continue to seek to ensure that its website is accessible to people who use assistive technology like screen readers and those unable to use a mouse or other pointing devices.
