We recognise the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available to all user groups.
Whilst we appreciate that it is not possible to create a website that is accessible to absolutely everyone, we have included accessibility checks into our design and build processes to ensure it conforms to the latest accessibility guideline requirements.
We build our content to meet the requirements of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) and to meet AA conformance with some exceptions:
- PDF document content is often generated by third-party software and may not always meet accessibility standards.
- Our homepage video does not offer captions
You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: View – Text Size.
HTML heading elements have been implemented to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.
All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.
We have checked text and background colour combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient, and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by colour alone.
We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.
We use Vimeo Pro to share film content on our website. Vimeo automatically transcribes the dialogue and make closed captioning available to all viewers. How to turn on captions while viewing films.
