This is the official accessibility statement for cphshops.com. If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me.
Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key.
The following access keys function on most pages of this site (the 'Home page' access key is available from all pages. If you find that other access keys are not available on some pages, use access key 1 to return to the home page and from there you can use the other defined access keys.
Furthermore, this site uses structured semantic markup to define headings. JAWS users can use ALT+INSERT+2 to navigate forward to the next major heading and ALT+INSERT+3 to navigate forward to minor headings.
This site strives to be as compliant as possible following these published standards:
This site and all its archives use cascading style sheets for visual layout.
Due to its technical nature, this site makes use of many acronyms and abbreviations. I try to define each instance with the appropriate HTML tag, but some older documents do not include them, and some older software does not support the HTML markup.
cphshops.com is self-rated using the PICS syntax from Safe for Kids, SafeSurf and ICRA.
Not all of the information on the site is contained directly in HTML pages. Hopefully the information below will assist those not familiar with some of the technologies used. We have attempted to list resources for a variey of platforms and browsers.
Compressed files attached to these pages are in Zip format. These files can be opened with Stuffit Expander(Mac, Windows, Linux and DOS versions available) from Aladdin Systems. You can also use WinZip(Windows only) from Nico Mak Computing and PKZip(Windows, Dos, OS/2, Unix) from PKWare.
WinZip and PKZip are shareware. Users who find these products useful are urged to properly register them. Stuffit Expander is available for free.
Portable Document Format(PDF) is used for some of the pages on this web site. Adobe Acrobat Reader is available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. Adobe also offers several accessibility options for PDF files. xpdf is available for X-Windows(X11) systems. The Ghostscript homepage also provides number of resources for displaying and printing Postscript and PDF format files. Most of the PDF files from the Play House are created using version 4.0 or greater.
We provide some calendar and contact information for design teams in vCalendar and vCard formats. Both of these standards are compatable with a variety of scheduling and email clients. Both Mozilla Calendar and iCal can import the calendar data.
We also have used Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) for some of the 3-D models available on the web site. A VRML player we have had good luck with is the Cosmo Player available from Cosmo Software.
Some pages make use of Scalable Vector Graphics(SVG). SVG is a new graphics standard proposed by W3C. The Adobe SVG plug-in is available for users of Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator. Macintosh Internet Explorer does not support scripting with the SVG plug-in. This is a fault in the browser not the plug-in. The current version of the Adobe plug-in will not function correctly if installed for both IE and Netscape on the same machine. The W3 SVG page list other implementations as they become available.
CAD files are created in MiniCAD/VectorWorks from Nemetschek and are available as zip files. Refer to the software info page for more details.
