NCVO aims to make our website accessible and usable by people of all abilities and disabilities, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive or motor impairments.
Many people use assistive technologies to allow them to adjust their experience of a website to make it easier for them to use. For example, they might:
- view a website in easier-to-read colours with larger fonts
- choose to experience content as spoken text
- navigate around a site just using the keyboard.
These technologies will become more available and sophisticated, and we want t our website to work well with them to deliver a good experience for all our users. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website – we use many of the available standards and guidelines.
Our web designers and developers, Clickingmad Ltd, use a range of methods and processes to ensure that our website is accessible to all users. For example, all images and hypertext links should include an alternative text description and tables should not be used to define the layout of the site. The site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS.
The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards-compliant HTML/CSS, so it should also work in browsers in the buture. However, while we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it may not always be possible to do so in all areas of the website. There may be visual differences when using different browsers and users with different devices will experience the website in different ways.
If you have any questions regarding the accessibility or usability of our website, please contact us through the contact us page.
