ACCESSIBILITY

Ease of Reading

The topics addressed are complex and the language is necessarily difficult. However, the authors have tried to keep the difficulties to a minimum. The Flesch-Kincaid Readability Test measurements for key pages are generally:

  1. Flesch Reading Ease: about 35

  2. Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level: about 13

These measurements mean that someone with the equivalent of one year of college should be able to read the web site comfortably.

Accessibility by Those with a Physical Disability

For a person who can see but with difficulty, the Verdana 10pt font has been used for the normal text because of its clarity. Most browsers also permit the text on the web site to be enlarged using the browser's "view" tools.

For someone who cannot read the text, each page will later be available as streaming audio by clicking the appropriate button. This has not been done yet because of the frequent changes being made to the site.

Accessibility by Those who do not Speak English

Most U.S. citizens have enough English to read the web pages. For Spanish speaking citizens, the web will later be available in Spanish. This has not been done yet because of the frequent changes being made to the site.

Accessibility by Those who Do Not Read Easily

For someone who cannot read easily, it is intended that the content of the entire web site will be downloadable and for storage on a CD, tape, or MP3 player format. This has not been done yet because of the frequent changes being made to the site.

Accessibility by Those without High-resolution Monitors

The web pages are limited to a width of 750 pixels so that they can readily be seen on older, smaller, inexpensive 800x600 pixel monitors—about 10-15 percent of U.S. Internet users. 800x600 pixels is often referred to as SVGA or Super Video Graphics Array.

Fewer than 0.5 percent of users still have 640x480 pixel monitors, the original VAG or Video Graphics Array standard. Many Internet web pages are now designed for 1024x768 pixels, the EVGA or Extended Video Graphics Array standard, which is available on over 60 percent of monitors today, but this site attempts to make itself available to a higher proportion of the People.

Accessibility by Those without Internet Access

A copy of the web site may later be available in hard copy. This has not been done yet because of the frequent changes being made to the site. In the interim, if you have a friend with an Internet access, they can print out specific pages for you.
