    So before I submit my site (submissions end 7th August) I would like to make sure it’s schmico, so some good criticism or ideas would be loved.

    This is the Address:

    Thanks in advance


    Comments on page accessibility:

    • Navigation is not optimal; screen readers won’t read your flash navigation – it’ll just read the list[/*:m]
    • No access keys?! At least add some to your navigation[/*:m]
    • Screen readers will not read your phone number or e-mail adress ( … s/logo.jpg)[/*:m]
    • Your footer is absolute failing when it comes to accessibility[/*:m]
    • You should embrace your "Search"-text with a label for the input field (on front page)[/*:m][/list:u]

      I would seriously recommend you to read, and to follow (at least some of) the tips given from Dive Into Accessibility. You should also get yourself an accessibility statement too.


    Awesome thanks for all those points, I’ll be working on them over the next few days :)
