ABCUL is committed to providing accessible services for everyone regardless of their ability. Our website is one of our main communication tools and we are committed to ensuring that members can use it easily.
Commitment to communication
New media technologies are developing and changing at a fast pace. However, we are committed to developing an accessible website that complies with all commissioning, editorial, design and coding standards as well as the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative.
We also use appropriate assistive technologies. Our online media works well with technologies such as software page readers.
The accessibility guidelines we are committed to following include:
using an easy to read web font type
the ability for users to control text sizes via browser
ensuring suitable foreground and background colour contrast on text
using clear and simple grammar
providing meaningful alternative text equivalents for pictures
providing straight forward and consistent site navigation
ensuring the target of each link is clearly defined
providing a sitemap
using appropriate structural mark-up to maximise browser support.
ensuring all content and functionality is available to users without content style sheet (CSS), image and script support.
