Accessibility Statement for www.twolooseteeth.com

If you have any questions or comments about the accessibility of this site, feel free to email me at lisa@twolooseteeth.com.

Access keys

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 home page and all archives define the following access keys:
Access key 1: Home page
Access key 4: Search box
Access key 9: Feedback
Access key 0: Accessibility statement

Navigation aids

1. All archive pages have rel=previous, next, up, and home links to aid navigation in text-only browsers and screen readers. Mozilla users can also take advantage of this feature by selecting the View menu, Show/Hide, Site Navigation Bar, Show Only As Needed (or Show Always). Opera 7 has similar functionality.

2. The home page and all archive pages include a search box (access key 4).


1. Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target (such as the headline of an article).

2. Whenever possible, links are written to make sense out of context. Many browsers (such as JAWS, Home Page Reader, Lynx, and Opera) can extract the list of links on a page and allow the user to browse the list, separately from the page.

3. Link text is never duplicated; two links with the same link text always point to the same address.

4. There are no "javascript:" pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off.

5. There are no links that open new windows without warning.


All content images used in the home page and all archives include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.

Visual design

This site and all its archives use cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
