I want my site to be accessible to as many people as possible. The following features are currently implemented or being implemented:

Accessibility Toolbar

To the left of each page is a square with a stick figure of a person inside a circle. If you click that square, a menu will pop up with the following readability options:

  • Decrease font size
  • Increase font size
  • Dark contrast (styles the page in high-contrast mode against a dark background)
  • Bright contrast (styles the page in high-contrast mode against a white background)
  • Grayscale (converts page to grayscale)
  • Keyboard navigation
  • Readable font (replaces all fonts with Arial)

Currently, the keyboard navigation feature appears to be nonfunctional. I’m working on resolving that issue.

Audio Transcripts

Most audio is accompanied by either a link to the written version of the text, or a transcript of the audio version. I am working on making music playlists accessible as well.

Content Warnings and Trigger Warnings

My bibliography with metadata page offers content keywords that act as both trigger warnings and general interest tags for each of my published works. I am working on going through my posts archive and adding common content warnings to the posts that warrant them. I do not tend to include content or trigger warnings for my reviews, but I would be happy to provide them by request—feel free to tweet me or  send me an email for specific warnings.

Image Descriptions

Most images have either a caption describing their contents or an image description on their linked attachment page. Some images may be missing this information; I’m working on going through my archives and captioning images. If there are any in particular that you would like a description of, feel free to contact me or file a bug report.

Screen Readers

I have tested my site with VoiceOver and included skip links for users’ convenience.

Seizure Warnings

I do not use animated gifs on this website. The only animations that appear on this site are the ones for magazine and album cover slideshows on my bibliography and discography pages. They do not autoplay. If you do click the left or right arrow, a sliding animation plays as the transition between different images.

I do use animated gifs on Twitter, which has an option to disable autoplay for gifs.

Additional Features

If there are any features I have not mentioned here that you would like to see on my site, please feel free to contact me or request them by filing a bug report.

Thank you so much for your patience while I update my site. 😊💓
