The City of Cerritos website was designed to be as accessible as possible to users, including those with disabilities. To simplify access, the website has a consistent navigation scheme and simplified layout. The website was also designed with cascading style sheets to ensure the page layout is consistent. Users can tab through the website’s content without the use of a mouse. The navigation drop-down menu can be opened by pressing the F12 key and then accessed by using the arrow keys. Skip to Content and Footer Links allow users to go to directly to the page’s content or footer. Photos and graphics on the website have “alt attributes” which allow screen readers to read the image content. Column rows and headers are also labeled to allow users with screen readers to listen to descriptions of the content.
