Website Accessibility Guidelines
  • All California Star Press Web pages shall support text browsers directly on the page to the extent that is possible.

  • All hyperlinks to PDF documents will include the word "PDF" within the hyperlink description.
  • Every graphic image shall have an "Alt" tag with a short description of that graphic image. If the graphic image is being used as a hyperlink, it will also include a description of the information at the hyperlink.
  • All audio and video clips shall have text transcriptions or descriptions. The graphic page will have a closed-captioned (CC) link button.
  • Hyperlink text shall contain descriptive words. Words like "this", "here" or "click" alone do not convey information about the nature of the link.
  • All news stories are required to have a "contact/comment" link. The link will provide an e-mail address for obtaining assistance in providing the requested information.
  • The use of frames in news publication pages will be avoided since they are not supported by all browsers and cannot be read intelligently by screen readers. Newspaper style layouts with text wrapping from one column to the next are not allowed.
