Accessibility

Policy

Our focus is on making the user experience for all users (of varying levels of ability) a practical and easy one - this can at times mean considering not only the technical coding standards, but also the rational information and process flows within the site, and can on occasion require deviation from published standards. Our policy, wherever feasible, is to offer the same functionality and experience to all users, and avoid the need for a 'text only' version of the site.
Approach

We employ within our design team an expert on web accessibility, and regularly liaise with recognised bodies such as AbilityNet and RNIB.
