Page – Accessibility
my developers try to make their sites as accessible to as many users as possible so that everybody gets to experience the site the way it was intended.
They test some common issues and if they’re applicable I will act on it.
They run my sites through a browser bookmark to check for things such as contrast and disappearing text to assist my users who suffer from colour blindness.
They usually aim to keep contrast high on their designs to avoid this being an issue. If you can’t see the site, I don’t want to let you down, you can either use this helpful information from the BBC
or get in touch to let me know.
They aim to make the font sizes on their websites big enough for general use but if you’re having issues you can change the font sizes on your machine / in your browser. Once again the BBC have some excellent guides on their website.
Their sites are designed using the latest responsive web technologies so increasing the zoom of the site should not compromise the experience at all.
Their sites also should not cause any problems with common screen readers, however, if you are having an issue, then once again, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
I are aware of course that there may be other difficulties experiences other than those listed here. Head on over to the BBC for guides on how to make your visit to my site better for you:
And please, if you experience any issues with my website, then I want to hear about them. They’ll help me to make the site better and more accessible than ever. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
