In keeping with our policy of customers first, and our obligations under the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act), we have made sure that our website is accessible to people who have visual, hearing, motor or cognitive impairments.
Making our website accessible is a core aim of Telford and Wrekin CVS and we will try and make sure that it is usable with a broad range of operating systems, browsers, and specialist assistive technologies.
As a standard, we employ all the following methods to ensure our site is accessible to as many people as possible:
We have linked to Natural Readers, where visitors can download a small programme that will make sure that all pages can be read out loud.
All pictures have an alternative text description
Resizing text can be done using the CTRL key and rolling the mouse wheel to zoom in on any area of the page with no loss of design or functionality.
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 stucture of a page
Our site can be viewed in a logical order when all styling is turned off helping you make your computer easier to use
To find out more about making your computer more accessible and easy to use, have a look at AbilityNet’s website. They have a range of tips and suggestions relating to accessibility issues.
If there is an instance when our site does not meet the need of a specific disabled user group we will make changes to our current content, wherever appropriate, so that we can become more inclusive to a wider audience. Please contact us if this is the case.
