Browser support

The browser support for each project varies on the individual product and the target audience. Homework Help For Kids, for example, is built to be supported by Internet Explorer 9 and above because many users access the website using that browser. Usually, however, I tend to aim for the following versions to be supported:

10 + 11 All 20+ 26+ 35+

Accessibility

This portfolio site, Fake News Checker and Homework Help For Kids meet most, if not all, of the WCAG 2.0 guidelines for Levels A and AA.

Printer friendly

Printer friendly means that a website is designed so that, when printed, it does not display un-neccessary elements (eg. the navigation bar is hidden.) In my opinion, there are only certain types of websites which need this done (eg. reference sites may need this feature, whilst a gaming or shopping website may not need this feature.)

Currently, this portfolio site and the Homework Help For Kids website are "printer friendly".
