Hudson Global Accessibility Policy

All Hudson websites using the “hudson.com” domain have been designed and developed to achieve Priorities 1 and 2 of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines  (AA compliance).

Our accessibility program is part of a continued development process and will continue to drive the way we develop our online presence.  Below is an outline of the steps we have taken to ensure we achieve the checkpoints outlined above.

 

Navigation

Navigation is based on JavaScript, but all pages are accessible without JavaScript.

Javascript

All pages are usable when scripts, applets, or other programmatic objects are turned off or not supported.

Links

Some links use title attributes to describe the link, while titles are written to make sense of context.

Images

Every image conveying information uses ALT attributes to describe the image in text format, enabling screen readers to read it. Decorative images contain empty ALT attributes.

Downloads/PDFs

If you don’t have software/plug-in to display PDF documents, you can use Adobe conversion online tools  or download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Colour

Foreground and background combinations provide sufficient contrast and colour difference to enable colour blind users to make sense of the sites.

Text Sizing

The size of all text is defined in relative units, so its size can be changed using standard browser tools.
To change text size;

  • Mozilla, MSIE: Hold CTRL key and roll mouse wheel, or use menu item view/text size
  • Opera: Hold CTRL key and roll mouse wheel, or use menu item view/zoom

Useful Tools

  • Online Lynx viewer allows users to see pages without images/styles/scripts.
  • Jaws Screen Reader is the world’s most popular screen reader and works with your PC to provide access to software applications and the Internet.
  • Adobe conversion online tools convert to text Adobe PDF files in English and most Western European languages.

Questions

If you have any questions or comments regarding the accessibility of any of Hudson’s websites please email us at webaccessibility@hudson.com and a member of our team will respond.
