At Alder Brook we believe everyone should be able to access our website and we are taking continual steps to improve accessibility. This website has been developed to be as accessible as possible within the confines of the technology we’re using.
Whilst creating this website, we’ve incorporated recommendations and best practice from the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium’s) WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) guidelines.
The website uses HTML5 code to provide document structure and CSS (Cascading Stylesheets) to provide document formatting. By following guidelines set down by the W3C we are trying to make sure that all the information on our website is available to everybody: not just the text, but the information contained in the images and other media. Using these technologies also allows us to provide a website that loads faster, and displays in more devices.
We believe the website template set contains valid HTML5 and CSS code and meets Priority 2 (AA) of the Web Accessibility Initiative’s guidelines.
The site has also been build to expand conforming to original design layout. This is in order to allow users with visual impairments to increase text size without losing the structure of the site.
Text size can be increased/decreased in most browsers on a computer by:
On a PC
Holding the “Ctrl” key and pressing the “+” or “-” respectively, or by holding the “Ctrl” Key and scrolling the Mouse Wheel (If present). Pressing “Ctrl” together with “0”(zero) will return the text size to its default in later browsers.
On a Mac
Holding the “cmd” Key and pressing the “+” or “-” respectively, or by holding the “cmd” Key and scrolling the Mouse Wheel (if present). Pressing “cms” together with “0” (zero) will return the text size to its default in later browsers.
