Accessibility of this Website
We strive to make this website and its content as accessible as possible. We use the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and we are working hard to achieve a goal of WCAG 2.1 AA accessible as our target for this website.
What we do to make this website accessible:
- Use appropriate alt tags on images
- Ensure colour contrast is sufficient
- Caption or provide transcripts for videos and audio clips
- Test the validity of XHTML and CSS as we create new pages and styles
- Ensure that the text on pages can be enlarged using browser controls
If you spot something that is unhelpful to you and is likely to cause problems for other visitors, please let us know [LINK].
For those of you needing further help on accessing websites, we hope the following information will be useful. As well as this, GOV.UK’s pages on accessibility provide a good summary of where to find out information on accessibility.
The following websites have useful advice and information about web accessibility:
- World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)
- W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI)
- BBC My web my way
Some of our PDFs and Word documents may not meet full accessibility standards. For example, they may not be structured in a way that makes them accessible to a screen reader. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion.
Works in progress
Our website is currently under development with a number of new templates being created. As part of this work we are working hard to fix any issues to make all elements of our site accessible.
We welcome your comments about the accessibility of our website, venues and events. Contact us about accessibility [LINK].
