Other favorite features
KHI staff are committed to making sure that, whether you’re visiting us at khi.org or in person at the KHI Learning Center, you’re finding what you need to support effective policymaking and community conversations. At the new khi.org, these are some of the favorite features noted by our staff:
- Sleek design and layout with thumbnail images for each article
- Read Time posted next to the article, which calculates how long it may take to read the article so you can decide whether you want to make the time to read it now or bookmark it for later
- An integrated “share article” component making it a breeze to share via email and social media
- Room to include more data visualization such as Tableau charts and other interactive features – stay tuned!
The website redesign project gave us an opportunity to assess where we are and where we want to be with the digital accessibility of our content. While we have guideposts through the recommendations of the Web Content Accessibility Guidance (WCAG) and standards within Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act, KHI’s objectives with accessibility go beyond these specifications. Digital accessibility is integral to carrying out our mission. We recognize that meeting our internally established goals will be a marathon and not a sprint. With over 2,000 PDF documents in our online portfolio, we were able to reproduce much of that content in HTML format for improved accessibility, particularly for members of our audience using assistive technology. And we’re dedicated to re-uploading all of our video files to add closed captioning. Thank you for your patience as we advance in this important area.
