Accessibility Statement

This is the official accessibility statement for [Plastic Profiles](http://www.plasticprofiles.com/).  If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email us at <mailto:webmaster@plasticprofiles.com>.

### Access Keys ###

Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site.  On Windows, you can press `ALT` + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press `Control` + an access key.

All pages on this site define the following access keys:

* Access key 1 - Home
* Access key 2 - Flouropolymer Properties
* Access key 3 - Distributors
* Access key 4 - Contact Us
* Access key 5 - Daikin CTFE
* Access key 6 - DuPont TEFLON FEP
* Access key 7 - DuPont TEFLON PFA
* Access key 8 - DuPont Tefzel
* Access key 9 - Solvay Halar
* Access key 0 - Accessibility Statement

###Standards compliance ###

* All pages on this site are [Bobby <acronym title="triple A">AAA</acronym> approved](http://bobby.watchfire.com), complying with [all the Bobby guidelines](http://bobby.watchfire.com/bobby/html/en/browsereport.jsp).  This is always a judgement call; many accessibility features can be measured, but many can not.  I have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
* All pages on this site are <acronym title="Web Content Accessibility Guidelines">WCAG</acronym> <acronym title="triple A">AAA</acronym> approved, complying with [all priority 1, 2, and 3 guidelines](http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/full-checklist.html"> of the [<acronym title="World Wide Web Consortium">W3C</acronym> Web Content Accessibility Guidelines](http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/").  Again, this is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically.  I have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
* All pages on this site are [Section 508 approved](http://bobby.watchfire.com), complying with all of the <acronym title="United States">U.S.</acronym> Federal Government [Section 508 Guidelines](http://www.section508.gov).  Again, a judgement call.  I have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
* All pages on this site [validate as <acronym title="extensible hypertext markup language">XHTML</acronym> 1.1](http://validator.w3.org).  This is not a judgement call; a program can determine with 100% accuracy whether a page is valid XHTML.  For example, [check the home page for XHTML validity](http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.plasticprofiles.com). 
* All pages on this site use structured semantic markup.  H2 tags are used for main titles, H3 tags for subtitles.  For example, on this page, JAWS users can skip to the next section within the accessibility statement by pressing `ALT+INSERT+3`.

### Links ###

* Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article).
* Links are written to make sense out of context.

### Images ###

* All content images used in this site include descriptive `ALT` attributes.  Purely decorative graphics include null <code>ALT</code> attributes. 
* Complex images include <acronym title="long description">LONGDESC</acronym> attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.

### Visual design ###

* This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
* This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
* If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
