Smile4Wessex recognises the need for our website to be accessible to all. We have implemented a number of features to make this website easy to use, especially for users with disabilities.
We have included features such as colour considerations and easily resizable fonts and we will continue to make improvements over time.
Accessibility features on this website
The following features improve navigation for text only browsers, screen reader users, and users of keyboard navigation.
- Style sheets
This site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout. If your browser supports it, style sheets can be disabled or over-written to customise the appearance of the website, to your preference.
- Font sizes
You can change the font size of each page to your preference through the browser.
>> In Internet Explorer: select View, then Text Size, and then your preferred size.
>> In Firefox: press CTRL + to increase font size and CTRL - to decrease. CTRL 0 will reset sizes to default.
Tables are sometimes used to display tabular data. Tables are not used for general site layout. This means our tables are being used in a correct and meaningful manner.
The site has been designed to be easy to read through its colour combinations.
We have worked hard to ensure that our links are meaningful, and some links are explained in greater detail by using a title attribute.
This website will function and look as intended in the following browsers.
>> Firefox 63.0.3 +
>> Internet Explorer 11.0+
>> Safari on Mac OS X 11.1.2+
>> Chrome 70.0+
If you do not have one of these browsers installed or are unable to upgrade, you may find the website easier to use by disabling CSS altogether - please see your browsers help documentation for further information.
Our pages use valid XHTML and CSS. To ensure code quality and that standards are maintained we are committed to checking this on a regular basis.
