Website accessibility depends on how an individual’s disability affects the way they identify information displayed on a web page and how they are able to navigate around the website.
We aim to make sure our website can be used by people of all abilities and disabilities and have taken great care in the design process to comply with W3C’s WCAG 2.0 Guidelines.
We are continually working to improve the user experience for all those who visit the site and would urge you to email us if you’re having trouble viewing the site, or if you have any suggestions in relation to accessibility.
Changing Colours And Seeing The Website More Clearly
You can change the appearance of this site using your browser’s settings. Browsers provide different accessibility options, but will allow you to change the size of text and – in many cases – colour and layout.
To change the text size on this site, please use your preferred browser’s zoom function. This setting can be found as part of your browser’s ‘Zoom’ or ‘View’ options. You can also use your keyboard’s CTRL key to change text size by repeatedly pressing a combination of CTRL +, or CTRL -.
To change text colour or layout settings, please refer to your browser’s ‘Preferences’ from the browser menu.
Our website has been built to function across as many browsers as possible. Some older browsers may limit website functionality, although we have developed this site to minimise that possibility as much as possible.
Using Your Keyboard And Mouse
To prevent interference with screen readers and user keyboard access we have avoided using access keys to develop this website. There are several alternatives available for those who cannot operate a keyboard or mouse including third party software such as KMouse Tool (which can provide an auto mouse-click function) or Dasher, (software used to create text using a pointing device) developed by the Inference Group at Cambridge University.
For further information about this software please refer to the websites listed below. Please note Geldards is not responsible for the content of external websites.
