Toledo's Attic aims to improve visitor experience by taking an inclusive approach to developing and displaying content on these pages.  We take accessibility to heart and accommodate visitors of all ages, abilities, experiences with historical materials, and access to all devices (desktop, laptop, tablet, and handheld alike). 

This site has been developed on the Joomla 2.5 platform with support for mobile devices.  Even so, the multitude of mobile technology standards may present some challenge in developing exhibits that favor one standard or device over others.  This guide presents information for visitors experiencing problems with accessing specific contents.  This page offers some viewing recommendations and works-around, but not technical advice.

Viewing Recommendations

Browsers: The site has been developed using Firefox, but can be viewed with Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, and Opera.  We welcome reports of successful or problematic viewing with other browsers.  We also recommend that you update your browsers periodically to benefit from bug fixes and new features released with those products.

Pop-ups: Browser should be set to accept pop-ups from this site.

Display: Your Screen resolution should allow at least 1024 pixels for width. You can further zoom in by holding CTRL and hitting + on your keyboard.  Use CTRL and - to zoom out.

Known issues

Some browsers may need the Flash and Quicktime plugins to view legacy media--that is, media previously developed for Toledo's Attic and integrated into this site -- and some of the newer Flash-based exhibits, presentations, and other interactive media.  This site can be fully accessed with standard desktop and laptop, and mobile devices with the required plugins.

Media types used on this site (thus far):

  • SWF (Shockwave Flash) - this will not play on iPads, iPods, and iPhones, all other devices will require a Shockwave Flash plugin (Download Free)
  • Quicktime -  this will not play on iPads, iPods, and iPhones, all other devices will require a Shockwave Flash plugin (Download Free)

We will greatly benefit from receiving input from visitors reporting issues (and applicable solutions) in the commenting area below.  Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns, questions, and solutions.
