Boston T Party is currently undergoing a redesign so please bear with us. More about the redesign.

Accessibility

We've tried our very best to make the Boston T Party website as accessible and usable for as many people as possible.

While we know that it is impossible to design a site that everyone can use, if you have problems using our site, please let us know and we will do our utmost to help.

Standards compliance

All pages comply with priority 1 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and the U.S. Federal Government Section 508 Guidelines.

All pages validate as HTML5.

Links

Whenever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers - (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) - can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page. To aid this, link text is never duplicated; two links with the same link text always point to the same address.

There are no javascript: pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off. There are no links that open new windows without warning.

Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.

The layout is liquid, simply filling its window. It happily accommodates resizing text and, as relative units have been used, text can even be re-sized in Internet Explorer for Windows.
