Striving toward Universal Accessibility and Usability
Assurance of Quality
To ensure usable site design and accessible user interface, qualitative testing is performed for several key factors, including usability, accessibility, privacy, browser compatibility, and standards compliance. We employ services such as WAVE to ensure complete usability and accessibility. We also employ valid, semantically correct HTML markup and CSS that validate against W3C standards. If ever you should find something that could be improved in any way, please feel free to let us know.
Perishable Press is developed and maintained according to the cornerstone principles of modern website design: progressive enhancement, unobtrusive scripting, backward compatibility, and a strict separation of content, structure, presentation, and behavior. Whether experiencing our accessibility features firsthand or examining our official Accessibility Statement, suffice it to say that Perishable Press strives to deliver clear, concise content via accessible, standards-compliant design that is free and available for everyone to use and enjoy.
Well-Structured, Valid Markup
Perishable Press provides meta information for images, links, abbreviations, and acronyms. For images conveying semantic meaning, textual descriptions are provided via
alt attributes. Images conveying no semantic information (e.g., background images, racing stripes, and other presentational graphics) will present an empty
alt attribute. Similarly, links, acronyms, and abbreviations will provide explanatory descriptions via
title attributes. Other types of metadata and attributes provided based on context, feature, and so forth.
On the Web, pages come and go every day. Because of this, you may encounter hyperlinks that lead to “404 – Not Found” results. At Perishable Press, 404 links are updated/removed as quickly as they happen, but that is not always possible. If you encounter a broken link, please report it immediately so we can take action and get it fixed up. Also, if you encounter some text that looks like this, that means the text was linked to a resource that no longer is available. If you hover over the once-linked text, you will see that it says “404 link removed”. For additional details about the link, check the source code for any “data” attributes, like
