How we support universal accessibility
There are a number of ways in which we aim to support universal accessibility:
· a common design throughout
· use of cascading style sheets (CSS1) for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets, the content of each page should nevertheless be readable
· use of relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified “text-size” option in visual browsers
· all images have appropriate alternative text descriptions (“ALT text)
· if you use text-only or audio browsers you can “skip over” the main page navigation buttons (rather than having to tab through them manually at the start of every page) and jump immediately down to the main page content
· avoiding the use of frames
· links are written in such a way that you can predict where a link is likely to take you. All links open in the same browser window unless otherwise specified
· Whenever Word and PDF files are provided on a page (usually for large, complex documents) their file size is indicated, together with help and advice on how to read them. Before you can read PDF files you will need the Adobe Acrobat viewer which can be downloaded from www.adobe.com. Useful information on PDF files and their accessibility is available at: access.adobe.com
· use of valid html code (HTML 4.01 transitional) to support aural and Braille technologies.
· all of our forms are designed to follow WAI and RNIB guidelines. Each form field is labelled and you may use your tab button to move through the form.
· advice on changing your Text size.
Changing the site’s background colour can be particularly useful for users who rely on magnification technology, as white can produce an uncomfortable glare. It is also possible to change the colour of body text on the site. Both can be achieved by changing preferences in your browser.
