AoC website accessibility

We have designed the AoC’s website to be as accessible as possible. You can easily adjust the site in a number of ways to fit your needs.

The website is built using XHTML and CSS, according to W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) standards. Where we do publish PDFs or other formats our policy is to make them as accessible as we can.

We try to use clear and simple language. We use alternative text for all our images and we have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast.

We developed the design and layout of the site so that it can be used by blind or partially sighted users. It is compatible with screen readers and can be navigated without the use of a mouse or keyboard.

Making our website accessible is the responsibility of each and every person involved in publishing web pages at AoC.

Resizable Text
The text across the site is resizable.  You can also change the text size using your browser. Instructions on how to resize text in different browsers. (This will open in a new window).

Browser Compatibility

The pages have been tested using various browsers to ensure that the information contained within the site is accessible to a range of different browsers.

We do however recommend, that to get the best experience from your visit to our site, you view the site in Internet Explorer version 6 or above. Javascript is used in some places throughout the site, so in order to get the best experience you should have Javascript enabled.

Further improvements
We continue to make further improvements and enhancements to our accessibility features according to feedback.
