Help About Page
The website serves consumers (people looking for health care providers with specific
accessibility capabilities) and providers (professionals and institutions who provide
specific accessibility services).
Home Page Navigation Links
Find a Provider: For consumers, the first link (Find a Provider) may be used to
navigate to an interactive database page where users can insert multiplr Keywords
horizontally across the page under three column headings: Provider Type, Location, and
Survey Question. A search button may be used to initiate a keyword searchand help locate
healthcare providers whose services match those criterions. The keyword boxes are
located just under the column headings of a table that has columns labeled: Provider Name,
Provider Type, Provider Location, Category, Provider Question (You can ignore the first,
forth, and last, 6th column labeled: Yes/No Quantity).
At the top of the Find a Provider page, there are two radio buttons labeled: Wide
and Narrow. Wide is the default. A Wide search connects the keywords together using
the word “OR” so your results expand with each keyword entered. A Narrow search
connects the keywords together using the word “AND” so your search gets smaller as
more keywords are added.
Keywords: Keywords may be partial words, complet words and short phrases. Case is not
sensitive but points are taken off for misspelling! After adding or deleting a keyword
you may press the Enter Key or click on the “Search” button at the top of the page.
Navigation aids: At the top of the page and after the Wide and Narrow search radio
buttons, are two links labeled: “Return” and "Help." Return, heads back
to the home page and Help brings up the Help and About page and a separate window.
Navigation aids (continued): To the right of the next line below, after "Return" and Help"
buttons, are two links labeled: “Search” and “Reset.” The Search begins a new
query. Reset clears all Keywords to: "Enter Keyword" (A blank-filler with the words
“Enter Keyword” is used to indicate no keyword has been issued) and clears the search
