Sample Page

OneNet is a web content management system designed to create websites that are accessible to people with disabilities. Designed to work like Microsoft Word and other familiar word processors, the OneNet Editor helps authors implement accessibility techniques without having to learn HTML code.

This document demonstrates the features and formatting available in OneNet. 


There are eight headings in this document. The title, "Sample Page," is a Heading Level 1. The main section headings, including "Headings", "Lists", etc. are Heading Level 2. The "Tables" section contains two sub-headings, "Simple Tables" and "Complex Tables", which are both Heading Level 3.


The following outline of the sections of this document is a numbered list with five items. The fifth item, "Tables," contains a bulleted list with two sub-items:

Links (& Documents)

Links can connect readers to other web pages or to different locations on this page, for example:


Images may be included in OneNet pages. Some images may be decorative and some may be "meaningful." Some, such as charts and graphs, may require a "long description" to fully convey what they mean. OneNet will help you include the additional text necessary for someone who is blind to understand your page.

Using Columns, a page can be split into two or more horizontal sections. Unlike tables, in which you usually read across a row and then down to the next, in columns, you read down a column and then across to the next.

When columns are not created correctly, screen readers may run lines together, reading the first line of the first column, then the first line of the second column, then the second line of the first column, and so on.
