Accessibility Help

Our aim is to make the Accord AS website accessible to all, including those users with visual, cognitive, hearing or mobility impairments. If you are having a problem please contact us, and we will do our best to help.

Changing the preferences on your Web browser may help to make the site easier to use. It is possible to change text size and colour as well as background colours by making changes in the preferences or options section of your browser. The exact details of how to do this will be different for each type of browser, there is excellent guidance and advice at the BBC Accessibility Website My Web My Way

The site is being made compatible with adaptive technologies currently used to help people with disabilities to use computers. This includes screen-reading/magnifying software, voice-activated input software, and switch access.

If you use adaptive technology and are having problems accessing information on the site, please contact us and let us know:

  • which material you wanted to access
  • the problem you experienced
  • the access technology you were using

Guidelines

Our aim is that the Accord AS website will comply with the Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines 2.0

The guidelines are divided into three levels of compliance: Single-A (what you must do), Double-A (what you should do), and Triple-A (what you may do). Specifically, we are working on ensuring that the site complies with Double-A standard. This means we will meet all priority one and two checkpoints of the guidelines.
