The Accessibility Statement for Ambrosio's BDSM Site at Evilmonk.org
Evilmonk.org is not a business or a government agency. The ADA and Section 508 do not apply to it. However, Accessibility is the right thing to do and my goal is to make this site as inclussive as possible.
Measures to support accessibility
I am taking the following measures to ensure accessibility of Ambrosio's BDSM Site at Evilmonk.org:
- Include accessibility as part of our mission statement.
- Pursue continual learning about accessibility.
I originally designed this site in the 1990s (before the emergence of smart phones and responsive design.) As a result, I am in the process of learning modern web design techniques (such as HTML5, CSS3, and Responsive Design) and heavily revising the legacy desktop only design into something more mobile friendly.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. Ambrosio's BDSM Site at Evilmonk.org is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
I invite feedback on the accessibility of Evilmonk.org. Please let us know if you encounter accessibility barriers on this site.
See the Contact Me page.
I try to respond to feedback within 5 business days.
Accessibility of Ambrosio's BDSM Site at Evilmonk.org relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:
- Adobe ColdFusion
These technologies are relied upon for conformance with the accessibility standards used.
- Autmated testing
- manual self-evaluation
Autmated testing alone is not adequate. Manual testing is essential.
