Website AccessibilityWebsite Accessibility

Storm King Design is committed to making the Lauren Kearns Porcelain website accessible to all visitors. Accordingly this site has been created using valid eXtensible HyperText Mark-up Language (XHTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to improve the accessibility of the document and navigation. This conforms to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.

The site has been tested in a wide variety of browsers to ensure consistency and compatibility. All pages transform gracefully into intelligible content in those older browsers that have limited support for CSS and web standards (i.e. Netscape 6 and Internet Explorer 5). If you are still having problems viewing this website, we recommend that you download the free Firefox web browser.

Access KeysAccess Keys

A feature used to improve ease of navigation is the use of Access Keys. These are simply keyboard shortcut keys for navigating the site. Access keys on the Lauren Kearns Porcelain website are as follows:

  • Letter S skips the navigation and takes you to the main content
  • Number 1 takes you to the Homepage
  • Number 2 takes you to the About page
  • Number 3 takes you to the Statement page
  • Number 4 takes you to the Resume page
  • Number 5 takes you to the Portfolio page
  • Number 6 takes you to the Contact page
  • Number 7 takes you to the Links page

To use the Access Keys on your system, please follow these steps as they vary slightly across browsers and operating systems: In Internet Explorer on PC, use Alt plus Access Key then Enter to activate the shortcut. In Netscape and Firefox on PC, use Alt plus Access Key to activate the shortcut. In Firefox, Camino, Netscape, Safari, or Internet Explorer 5 on Mac, use Ctrl plus Access Key to activate the shortcut.

Text SizeText Size

The text size on every page of this website is fully customizable via your browser. In Internet Explorer you will need to go to "View" then "Text Size" to increase or decrease the size of the text on the screen. Many other browsers allow you to use the keyboard shortcut: Ctrl Shift plus +/- to alter the size of text.


To move from link to link, the Tab key can be used to navigate around the site without the need for a mouse. A "skip to content" Access Key (see above) has also been added for those using screenreaders to be able to bypass the navigation and go straight to the content on the page.
