The Web Page Design Company takes accessibility seriously and we place strong emphasis on making this website compliant to the Double A standard. We always welcome any feedback you may have in relation to accessibility in your experience of using this website.

Standards Compliance
This website has been developed to reach conformance rating Double A and comply with priority 1 and 2 checkpoints of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) v 1.0. with reference to the Access IT guidelines provided by the National Disability Authority (NDA) in Ireland.

The site uses structured semantic mark-up where possible. For example, internal content pages use H1 for all top level headings and list mark-up for internal navigation where possible. Using real list mark-up is best. Since visual presentation is in the CSS declarations, it does not clutter up the page. So both JAWS and Home Page Reader simply read your list for what it is: a list.

Visual Design
Our site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout and all presentation has been completely separated from content with the exception of layout tables. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.

Navigating the Website

  1. Navigation is visible at all times at the top of the page
  2. At the top of each page a search box can be found

Tab Key for Navigation
The Tab Key may be used to jump from one link to the next. All navigation bars in the site provide a logical order for this.

Resizing Text
Text can be increased or decreased by selecting the bigger sized T or the smaller sized T on the top right of our website above the search box.
