It is our aim to ensure that everyone can access our website. This includes people with information and communication needs, such as sight problems, hearing, mobility and cognitive impairments.
The BBC has a great website called ‘My web my way’ that gives guidelines and explains how to reach accessibility features and use assistive technologies. This can be seen here: http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/
We are aiming that this website complies with:
- The World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C’s) Level AA guidelines
- WCAG 2.0 A and AA, Section 508
