Hoping for some advice, of either technical or the client management type...
I'm working on a website redesign for a local government funded body - i.e. a public sector client who's website is used by general public, schools, business, councils, etc. They quite rightly want their redesigned site to be accessible and legally I believe they have to ensure it is.
I've strongly suggested that the revised design uses a "Resize Text" link which links to a page similar to this one: http://www.wildlifetrusts.org/accessibility because
b) educating people how to use their browser controls to resize text is a solution they can use on many other websites.
(Obviously the text sizes will be specified in in the css with em units for the benefit of IE users.)
The client however insists they want to keep the current text resize functionality. So my questions are:
a) does anyone know of a css only or css+php method to resize text?
b) can anyone suggest a way of strengthening my argument to the client? - maybe there's an official/independent accessibility study or maybe it's actually illegal under UK disability law?
Any suggestions most appreciated - even telling me I'm worrying about nothing - thanks!
