Accessibility policy

As a standard, we employ all the following methods to ensure our site is accessible to as many people as possible:

  • Browsealoud is available to ensure that all pages can be read out loud to any visitor
  • All pictures have an alternative text description
  • There is an easy to use text-resizer on all pages for those with javascript enabled on their computers. Our stylesheets allow for text resizing using the View – Text Size option in the browser toolbar for those who do not have javascript enabled.
  • The website can be viewed using a variety of colour schemes ensuring it can be used by visitors who find the existing colour scheme hard to read
  • We are committed to Plain English in all our written content
  • Our site has been designed without the use of tables except where we need to represent normally tabulated content i.e. timetables
  • The website can be navigated without the use of a mouse
  • A non-serif font is used for easier readability
  • We do not use all-capitals for emphasis
  • We use a hierarchy of heading markups i.e an <h1> tag for main headings, <h2> for secondary headings etc which makes it easier for screen readers to work out the structure of a page
  • Our site can be viewed in a logical order when all styling is turned off
