DivisionsBC.ca updated to improve accessibility

November 13, 2020 | We recently updated styles on the divisions website to improve accessibility for visitors with visual impairments. To do this, we listened to divisions’ feedback, did a website audit, reviewed best practices, and identified solutions that bring us closer to a website more inclusive to users of all abilities.

Here are the website style changes:

  • Changed font colour from light grey to dark grey
    (see image 1)
  • Increased font size found on ‘main content section’ of all pages
    (see image 1)
  • Orange hyperlinked text is now bold
    (see image 1)
  • Font colour on featured strips (see image 2) and featured highlights
    (see image 3) changed from white to dark grey
