Welcome to the accessibility statement for Specialty Chemical Sales. This page covers the accessibility and standards compliance measures taken by Specialty Chemical Sales, as well as guidelines on how to take advantage of those features. We have made every reasonable attempt to make the content on this website as accessible as possible to all disabled persons.


Enhanced Navigation

Every page has several navigation aids built into the code to enable those with screen readers and other assistive technologies to quickly navigate the content. This enhanced navigation comes in several forms.

Navigation Aids in the Metadata

The metadata of each page contains links to the homepage, the contact page, and the site map. Screen readers will display these links first when loading a page, while users of traditional browsers can use these links by configuring their browser to use them. Currently, the following browsers support navigation aids.

   Opera. In Opera, click View> Toolbars> Navigation Bar to enable the navigation aids at the top of

   the screen. (Opera also allows users to move these toolbars to different sections of the browser.)

   Mozilla. In Mozilla, click View > Show/Hide > Site Navigation Bar.

   Firefox. Firefox does not natively support navigation aids, but you can use the extension Site

   Navigation Bar to have Firefox automatically display these links when they are present.

Access Keys

Several access keys are also used for primary navigation links:

1 Homepage

0 Accessibility statement

Access keys can be used by almost all user agents — including screen readers and browsers. In Internet Explorer, press Alt+Access key and then the Enter key. In Firefox, simply hit Alt+Access key. Likewise, in Safari for the Mac OS X platform, simply hit Control+Access key.


Font Sizes

This website uses relative font sizes, which means they can be easily resized by browsers if you find the type difficult to read.


   Internet Explorer. Choose View > Text Size > Larger (The default is Medium).

   Firefox. Press Ctrl+[plus symbol] to increase the font size, or Ctrl+[minus symbol] to decrease

   font size. (Or navigate to View > Text Size and choose to increase or decrease the size.)

   Opera. This browser scales the entire page, not just the font size, which makes it very good

   for visually disabled users who want to magnify images as well. Select View > Zoom and then a

   percentage by which to increase the page.


Standards Compliance

The accessibility of the Specialty Chemical Sales website is aided by its adherence to web standards. This includes making sure all pages validate to a DocType of XHTML 1.0 Strict, allCSS files validate to the W3C’s specifications, and that all pages meet the majority of accessibility requirements set forth in WCAG 2.0 AA and specifically in Section 508.


Accessibility Barriers

Despite our best efforts, there still remain accessibility barriers within this website. It is known that not all pages validate perfectly; we are working on that, but if you find a specific problem, please contact us. In addition, the visual formatting of these pages has been hidden from older browsers such as Netscape 4. If you are using a browser from the 1990s, please upgrade.
