We want to make sure that everybody can use the sites easily, so we try and build them with accessibility in mind. Broadly, we aim to comply with WCAG 2 (http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG20/glance/). We are working to ensure all older sites and content are made compliant with these accessibility standards and will build these in for any future web sites and portals we implement.
Examples of what we do are:
- The standard font used throughout the site is sans serif for easy legibility.
- Wherever possible, we use live text instead of graphics to reduce the download time of pages and let screen readers access the copy. And where possible, images have an alternative text attribute associated to them.
- Some users might find the site easier to read by increasing the size at which text is displayed. To do this you can adjust your browser’s settings by going to the View menu, then select ‘text size’ or ‘text zoom’ or ‘zoom’ and increase the size of the text.
