Setting the Stage for Ubiquitous Web Access and What It Should Mean to You

Before presenting the cumulative set of graphics, Scsi wants to set the stage for you with some introductory information.

  1. Scsi's Productivity and Knowledge Transfer Web Site is a productivity-focused model first-pass solution for Ubiquitous Web Access -- Here and Now -- that everyone can and should benefit from.
  2. Scsi's productivity and knowledge transfer-related concepts, principles, and practices presented within this Web site are intended for visitors, prospects, customers, and other users to help them to learn about, apply, and pass along to others.

 

Scsi's Working Definition of Universal Web Accessibility and Web Usability

Scsi's Working Definition of Universal Web Accessibility and Web Usability -- often referred to as Ubiquitous Web Access -- is synonymous with the phrase "World Class Level" Web Sites.

To reach this objective, Scsi evolved a set of Best Practices that collectively are referred to as Scsi's "Perfect 10" Web Site Standard -- a productivity-focused model intended to serve others as an architectural and design foundation for achieving Ubiquitous Web Access.

The Ubiquitous Web Access House That Scsi Built

Web Standards Are The Foundation For Ubiquitous Web Access

Scsi's Productivity and Knowledge Transfer Web Site is "The house that Sonoff Consulting Services, Inc. (Scsi) built." Its design foundation is comprised of Scsi's set of ten Best Practices that every aspiring-to-be "World Class Level" Web site should strive to provide its visitors.

Much of the "who, what, where, why, when, and how" principles and their respective applications are addressed throughout this Web site's Web pages.

Scsi's Recommendation: Begin Your "Open House" Visit By Accessing Scsi's Expanded Home Page

For starters, Scsi's recommendation to anyone looking for such details is to begin by reading Scsi's Expanded Home Page and following through on any of the hyperlinked topics of interest to you at any given moment.

Put Everything Claimed To The Test

First-hand experience through performing hands-on exercises and do-it-yourself demonstrations tends to be preferred over any number of claims made by someone.

Scsi encourages everyone who visits this Web site to experience the Six Categories of Web-centric Benefits of this first-pass solution for Ubiquitous Web Access that collectively are both clearly demonstrable and testable throughout the entire sonoffconsulting.com domain.

Now! Here Comes The Promised Set of Graphics

A Picture Is Worth A Thousand Words

Granted, almost all content within the Scsi P&KT Web site is text-based, and many individuals clearly would prefer to have a storyboard of pictures to look through -- at least initially. This Graphics-based Home page is Scsi's attempt to address that preference on at least one Web page.

The remainder of this Web page focuses on providing graphical hyperlinks to the various "big picture concepts, principles, tools, and best practices" that you will find dispersed throughout Scsi's P&KT Web site.

Remember The Supporting Cast Is Text

If, for whatever reason(s), any of the cited graphics do not present themselves on your display device's screen, you can and should make use of the complementary (read: alternative selection) text-based hyperlinks provided on this graphics-based Home page to reach the associated link, be it another Web page or a standalone document, such as an untagged Portable Document Format (PDF) file with its own set of hyperlinks to select from.

Display of Graphics and/or PDF Files May Be Unsupported On Some Web Browsers

Be advised in advance that on less sophisticated devices and systems, you may not be able to view the graphics and/or the PDF files that are hyperlinked to on any given Web page within the sonoffconsulting.com domain.

Quantitatively score any Web site's page(s) -- by making effective use of Scsi's Test Criteria Evaluation Worksheet (STCEW) Tool

Select this STCEW Tool hyperlink -- or the graphic located immediately below if present -- to quantitatively score any Web page on any Web site of your choosing.

View a PDF file of the STCEW Tool Checklist document.

What will you quickly discern for yourself when you make use of the STCEW Tool?

The STCEW Tool is really an easy-to-use checklist, straightforward to understand, and anyone can use it to check for the presence or absence of List of Scsi's Web Best Practices on any Web site's pages.

With this document as a reference you can methodically proceed to quantitatively score any page -- on any Web site -- you so choose to evaluate.

Once you've completed an STCEW Tool-based evaluation, you should then be able to draw your own conclusions as to the degree of conformance -- for that specific Web page -- to Scsi's "Perfect 10" Set of "World Class Level" Web Site Best Practices.

Perform an STCEW Evaluation of any Web page of your choosing

Now, try this methodology for yourself -- for real. Below is a step-by-step procedure for how to proceed.

With the STCEW Tool either displayed or printed out and in front of you, do the following:

  1. Access a Web site page to examine for assessment for each of Scsi's ten Web Best Practices.
  2. For each of the ten Web Best Practices listed, enter either a Y (for Yes) or an N (for No) as answers -- based on what you have learned should occur with the Scsi P&KT Web Site as your model reference.
  3. Tally up the number of "Yes" entries and multiply that number by 10 to get the Web Best Practices score for that particular Web page.
  4. Refer to the legend for scoring and enter the resulting number on the Worksheet box reserved for that entry.
  5. Assess the grade for that Web page based on the cumulative score, namely: Perfect (100), Excellent (90), Good (70 or 80), Fair (50 or 60), Poor (30 or 40), Abysmal (10 or 20), and Total Failure (a zero).
  6. Repeat the prior steps for any other Web page(s) that you want to quantitatively assess.

 

That's how really easy it should be for you perform this evaluation process.
