***** 55-minute Audio Interview: Scsi's "World Class Level" Web site Design *****
SPECIAL NOTE: Learn what Scsi's "World Class Level" Web site design is all about by accessing the 55-minute recorded (audio-only MP3 file, 12 MB in size) interview Cincinnati Business Talk #158 Raymond Sonoff, Web Sites produced by Mike Roth, Cincinnati's longest-trained Sandler Trainer.
The major headings provided on Scsi's Use Any Browser -- by Design! page are listed immediately below:
The company's logo contains the slogan, "Scsi's TOTAL ACCESS Web Design ... Simply the best!" ... and TOTAL ACCESS is the unique answer in a nutshell.
The fundamental answer to this question is explained by Scsi's achievement of 100% accessibility, and this unique fact is clearly attributable to deliberate adherence to Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard.
To see the overall picture of what is stated above, select the image immediately below -- if present -- to view or download a full-page Adobe PDF diagram that provides hyperlinks to each of Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Best Practices for your convenience.
In what ways can 100% accessibility be demonstrated? Listed below are just three specific examples of Scsi's ten Best Practices for Usability and Accessibility that every World Class Level Web site should provide its visitors -- and that you will learn firsthand apply to each and every Web page within the Scsi P&KT Web site:
The fundamental underlying Web site design objective for the Scsi P&KT Web site is and will always remain as follows: To provide for 100% accessibility -- regardless of the particular means by which a visitor ultimately gets to the Scsi P&KT Web site.
The World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C's) "Ubiquitous Web Domain" reference document contains a definition similar to Scsi's Working Definition of Universal Web Accessibility and Web Usability. Stated simply, Ubiquitous Web Access is designed into Scsi's Web site -- through adherence to Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard with its underlying set of ten Best Practices that every "World Class Level" Web site should strive to provide its visitors, prospects, customers, clients, and users.
Consider the various combinations listed below as examples of what can be employed to clearly and convincingly demonstrate Scsi's claim of universal Web accessibility (commonly referred to as Ubiquitous Web Access):

Please read on because there's more to be said and demonstrated everywhere within the Scsi P&KT Web site itself.
In fact, if you are one of the majority who actually does prefer to navigate and access hyperlinks by pressing mouse buttons -- rather than making keyboard-based selections (e.g., use of the Tab and Enter keys) to reach any particular hyperlink on a Web page or to make a button selection, that's fine, too.
So, what is the point? The Scsi P&KT Web site can handle any combination of possible preferences, thereby allowing any visitor to have it his or her way at all times.
To find out more about how these things can and have been achieved here, please read on.
Amazingly enough, nearly all Web sites that you've visited to date -- including highly prestigious brand name companies we all know about and respect -- must have been created by Web design/development/implementation personnel who really have not done their homework in order to assure "getting it done correctly" in the first place.
As will be outlined in the following sub-sections, in contrast to the above-outlined situation for most companies, such examples of accessibility-related limitations are never employed for the Scsi P&KT Web site.
In effect, visitors should not be concerned about even the possibility for encountering such self-imposed limitations either now or at any time in the future within the Scsi P&KT Web site.
Fundamentally, burdening a Web design with overhead, assumptions, and unrealistic inferences should always be minimized. Less is truly more. Listed below are three topics that are reflected in Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard design considerations and which will always apply throughout the entire Scsi P&KT Web site:
"Less is more." That pretty much sums up why Scsi has chosen to apply the "Keep It Simple, Sonoff!" (KISS) philosophy to the overall design underlying the presentation of Web pages on the Scsi P&KT Web site.
As part of working toward implementation of the KISS philosophy, Scsi concentrated on not only asking but also answering just two fundamental questions:
For each such instance in question, the correct answer always had to center upon satisfying one overriding consideration, namely: If an element is judged to be non-essential, then don't make use of it in the underlying Web design.
So, this deliberate decision to a [KISS] philosophy is manifested by the following suite of facts -- all collectively applicable throughout the entire Scsi P&KT Web site:
To readily achieve these reductions in programmatic options, some deliberate 'sacrifices' were made, including the following:
How can sacrificing all of these powerful elements be done while still 'delivering all the desired goods' to every Web site visitor?
The explanation is truly both simple and elegant: As part of keeping things simple, using (essentially) only 'plain vanilla' HTML- and CSS-based source coding -- coupled with adherence to World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)-based standards -- is employed for each and every Web page's contents.
Remarkable -- if not even surprising to most persons -- is that is precisely what makes the adopted approach so universal in its applicability. Amazingly simple reason, isn't it?
From the outset, Scsi decided to maximize accessibility anywhere within the Scsi P&KT Web site by adopting two specific stances:
Moreover, proof of concept, interactivity, and learning Web-centric benefits on behalf of each and every Web site visitor, prospect, customer, client, and user are ever present, namely: three distinct validation testing-related choices -- (X)HTML(5); CSS; and WCAG recommendations -- are always included on this and on every other Web page within the Scsi P&KT Web site.
You can easily "W3C validation standard test" each and every Scsi P&KT Web page's HTML5 source code, Cascading Style Sheet (CSS3) source code, and Accessibility -- Section 508 (levels A, AA, and AAA, inclusive) / WAI)/Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 (levels 1, 2, and 3 inclusive) Conformance.
How easy is this to do? For any specific Web page that you are viewing within the Scsi P&KT Web site, just scroll down to the "Web Page Validation and Contact Information" section and then select the corresponding hyperlink for whichever of the three indicated tests that you want to execute.
The results of each such test will be displayed for your further examination. NOTE: For the accessibility testing selection, you will have to provide the Web page URL address as part of the overall procedure. In all cases, however, when done, you will need to select the "Back button" within your Web browser to return to the Scsi P&KT Web page where you can repeat as desired the tests for other selections until you are done with your testing. Finally, select the Back button (as many times as are necessary) until the Scsi P&KT Web site page on which you began your tests appears. That's all there is to it!
In a similar manner, you can also access the W3C's publicly accessible tools to test any other accessible Web site's pages of your choosing. To do this, select one of the three Web standards validation hyperlinks provided on Scsi's Tips and Notes page.
Within that validation testing window, you will need to make whatever corresponding field entries or selections are necessary to properly set up the test conditions and then select the associated button to initiate that specific W3C-based test. When you finish examining the displayed test results, select the Back button until the Tips and Notes Web page reappears.
