We aim for a high level of usability for our entire audience, following best-practice accessibility guidelines. We engage with disabled, non-disabled and elderly people throughout website development to fully understand user requirements.
Our objective is to conform to the Guidelines for UK government websites, which support the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, Level AA.
Well North are committed to ensuring the level of accessibility for disabled and elderly users is maintained over time. In partnership with the website developers, we will test the website with key target users regularly over time. Disabled and elderly users should always be able to carry out the following tasks:
- Be able to read all text on the website
- Be able to view all images and colours
- Find and download documents
- View the Twitter feed.
- Be able to clearly follow hyperlinks
If there are areas of our website that are unlikely to be accessible to people with particular impairments, we will ensure that there is clear instruction for how to access the information by alternative means.
