SILVER STAR FAMILIES OF AMERICA
The Silver Star Families of America Initiatives for Web Site Accessibility
The Silver Star Families of America is striving to provide web site content that is accessible to all. This is an on going effort and includes cooperation between many organizations.
At this point in time we believe that the SSFOA web site meets the requirements for a Priority One rating as defined in the W3C section 11.4 “List of Checkpoints for Web Content.” Note below.
The SSFOA will continue to work to allow individuals with disabilities complete access to our web site.

Pledge is signed
Silver Star Pledge
We pledge on our honor
To remember and assist the wounded
and ill of our Armed Forces
From ALL wars to the best of our ability.
We pledge that we will never forget
That we will always remember
The sacrifices you have made.
The blood sweat and tears that you shed
Will remain on our minds and in our hearts
And we will forever be grateful
We pledge that we will remind others
So that all remember
That you gave up so much
So that this Nation would not perish from the face of the earth.
God bless the United States of America
"Silver Star Shining for Sacrifice and Honoring our Wounded and Ill"
Thank you. I LOVE YOU.

List of Checkpoints for Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0
Priority 1 checkpoints
In General (Priority 1)
•1.1 Provide a text equivalent for every non-text element (e.g., via "alt", "longdesc", or in element content). This includes: images, graphical representations of text (including symbols), image map regions, animations (e.g., animated GIFs), applets and programmatic objects, ascii art, frames, scripts, images used as list bullets, spacers, graphical buttons, sounds (played with or without user interaction), stand-alone audio files, audio tracks of video, and video. •2.1 Ensure that all information conveyed with color is also available without color, for example from context or markup. •4.1 Clearly identify changes in the natural language of a document's text and any text equivalents (e.g., captions). •6.1 Organize documents so they may be read without style sheets. For example, when an HTML document is rendered without associated style sheets, it must still be possible to read the document. •6.2 Ensure that equivalents for dynamic content are updated when the dynamic content changes. •7.1 Until user agents allow users to control flickering, avoid causing the screen to flicker. •14.1 Use the clearest and simplest language appropriate for a site's content.
And if you use images and image maps (Priority 1)
•1.2 Provide redundant text links for each active region of a server-side image map. •9.1 Provide client-side image maps instead of server-side image maps except where the regions cannot be defined with an available geometric shape.
And if you use tables (Priority 1)
•5.1 For data tables, identify row and column headers. •5.2 For data tables that have two or more logical levels of row or column headers, use markup to associate data cells and header cells.
And if you use frames (Priority 1)
•12.1 Title each frame to facilitate frame identification and navigation.
And if you use applets and scripts (Priority 1)
•6.3 Ensure that pages are usable when scripts, applets, or other programmatic objects are turned off or not supported. If this is not possible, provide equivalent information on an alternative accessible page.
And if you use multimedia (Priority 1)
•1.3 Until user agents can automatically read aloud the text equivalent of a visual track, provide an auditory description of the important information of the visual track of a multimedia presentation. •1.4 For any time-based multimedia presentation (e.g., a movie or animation), synchronize equivalent alternatives (e.g., captions or auditory descriptions of the visual track) with the presentation.
And if all else fails (Priority 1)
•11.4 If, after best efforts, you cannot create an accessible page, provide a link to an alternative page that uses W3C technologies, is accessible, has equivalent information (or functionality), and is updated as often as the inaccessible (original) page.
