Adopted standards

We have designed this portal based upon international standards listed in the World Wide Web Consortium for the ease of accessibility for all portal users.

Images and links on the site contain 'alt tags,' which aid users who listen to the content of the site by using a screen reader, rather than reading the site. Likewise, a 'skip to' link provides these users with a method for bypassing the header and going directly to the main content each time a page is accessed.

Although the Nigerian National Portal is still in its initial stages, we are constantly updating it in an attempt to make it as accessible as possible. To improve the accessibility of the Nigerian National Portal we have reviewed the site's accessibility with outside web tools, the results of these reviews have been incorporated into the website. we ask that users with disabilities review the site and welcome comments on how to improve the site's accessibility for users with disabilities.

For people with special needs:

Hidden links are placed in the top of pages in order to shorten time to users of screen reading software for quick access to the portal's parts:
