Web Accessibility Statement

Most pages on this site use the Open Source Content Management System Plone and have been designed to be completely accessible and usable, working in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (v1.0). This includes such features as 'Skip to Content' and 'Skip to Navigation' links. We have also endeavoured to achieve AA accessibility as measured against version 1.0 of the WCAG.

We are aware however, that a number of the checkpoints of the WCAG are subjective — and although we believe that we have met them squarely; there may be instances where interpretation may vary. If you have any issues with accessibility on this site, please contact us using the help/feedback form.

Accessibility on Attenborough Arts Centre website

We hope you find the Attenborough Arts Centre website easy to use. Attenborough Arts Centre is committed to providing accessible and usable information and services on our website and are working towards complying with Priority 2 of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

 

Here are some of the things we have done to try and make it easier for you to access our information and services:

A stylesheet is used on our website and relative font sizes on all text with the exception of graphical text.

 

Text can be increased or decreased in size by:

  • using the "view" option in your browser
  • turning the wheel on your mouse while holding down Ctrl. Press Ctrl + 0 to cancel.
  • All images should have alternative text equivalents to ensure that people who cannot see images can still use the site. If you find an image without alternative text please contact us.
  • Our site has consistent navigation and structure to make it easy for you to find your way around it.
  • Our site is accessible to people using a range of equipment and browsers, including older and lower specification hardware and software. However, if you experience any problems please contact us.
  • We try to use plain language and break text up where possible to make it easier and quicker to read. If there is anything you do not understand or if you require any further help please contact us.

 

Images and ALT text

All images on this site are accompanied by a brief alternative text which describes the image or its function as appropriate. This alternative text (alt text) is generally visible only when the browser’s automatic image loading feature is turned off.

 

Navigating without a mouse

This website has been designed so that you don’t need a mouse or any specific pointing device to use it. 
If you have a problem with hand held devices such as mice, you can navigate through the website using the Tab key and then hitting Return to navigate to a page.

When watching videos

Videos created and produced by Attenborough Arts Centre will either have subtitles, a written transcript or both. We host our videos on YouTube and often add other artists and performers videos into a playlist; therefore we cannot guarantee that all videos will have accurate captioning or transcripts.
