The Santa Barbara AA Convention with Al-Anon Participation is committed to adherence with the principles of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
We believe the Santa Barbara AA Convention web site (http://www.sbaaconvention.org) conforms to the W3C’s “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0”, Level “A”.
Accessibility of the Elks Lodge
All meetings and events on the main floor, the Main Mall and the Elks Lodge Café area, and bathrooms are accessible by wheelchair. There is accessible parking and wheelchair ramps to and from the building. There is a chair lift that provides access to meetings upstairs. If you need special accommodations or have further questions, please contact the committee chair.
Web Site Accessibility
- Simple and Consistent
Our web site uses simple information architecture with uniform navigation and reliable headings throughout. Content layout and graphical design are consistent on every page.
- "Skip to:" Links
The Skip to navigation appears at the top of each page. It allows the user to jump to the content area, accessibility page, or footer, and skip the navigation and other header elements, which repeat on every page.
- Main Site Navigation
The main navigation located at the left column of the page content area, uses lists. Lists make it easier for screen readers to literally read down the list without having to sort through unnecessary code. Lists also allow the users to use the tab key to move from link to link.
- Images with Alternative Text
Photographs and other relevant images on the site are accompanied by alternative text (the alt attribute of the Image <img> tag). Alt tags provide a written description of the image, which is accessible to screen readers, and it is visible when the mouse is placed over the image. This is also useful for people who have images turned off on their browser, in which case a description will display where the image used to be.
- Style Sheets
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used for content layout and many graphical elements (color, font styles, custom titles and subtitles, etc.) Using CSS for styling keeps our HTML clean, streamlined, easier to maintain, and it downloads faster. Style sheets can be replaced by the user's own styles.
Access keys are keyboard shortcuts that help you navigate the site.
- Use Alt+1 to access the Skip to Content link.
- Use Alt+2 to access the Skip to Footer link.
- Use Alt+3 to access the Skip to Accessibility Statement link (this page).
- No Sound? No Images?
It may not be pretty, but all content is accessible without sound, color, scripts or graphics.
