KICTANet’s new website: Call for comments

The site’s design is aesthetically appealing, the template is flexible and
therefore optimized for mobile and I love the Twitter plugin. Great work
team.

Kindly consider the following:
1. Include features to improve the site’s accessibility like a screen
reader for the visually impaired.
2. Include a font re-sizer plugin for zooming in and out the text.
3. Add the “alt” tags to the images, so that in slow internet connection
the alternative text can be loaded first in place of the image and also for
the screen readers.
4. Website Analytics ~ so we can know how many people are visiting the site.
5. When I click on an image, I want it to expand and overlay the website.
There is a plugin that can do that.
6. Can the “Join KICTANET” sub-menu under “ABOUT” be brought one level up
on the top menu?

Otherwise it’s a brilliant job, keep it up team.
