We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and therefore we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfil this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.

Screen-reader and keyboard navigation
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioural changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions.
Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements:
The platform’s images where possible have meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag. External images or embedded objects may not have alternative text but where they are videos or images, these are editable within the platform.
Alternative text should be compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Browser and assistive technology compatibility
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Notes, comments, and feedback
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible, for example where content is delivered from an external source from such tools as via Genial.ly. Padlets, Panopto etc. This is a dynamic and evolving platform and content, with innovative services and so errors and issues may still occur. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. If you wish to contact the website's owner please use the following email email@example.com
