Accessibility

Conviviality Plc seeks to make its website as accessible as possible, and so the website has the following features:

  • Pages are designed to be viewed on a wide range of screen resolutions
  • You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option (usually View >> Text size)
  • All images have been given descriptive alternative text tags
  • We have used text and background colour combinations that are sufficient in contrast
  • The page structure is easy to navigate by using a clear and user friendly menu that is visible on each page of the site and uses HTML headings
  • Cascading Style Sheets control the presentation of pages and we have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read
  • The use of JavaScript has been kept to a minimum. Where it is used then all pages are still accessible should JavaScript be turned off
  • All forms and fields follow a logical tab sequence to ensure easy navigation
  • A sitemap is available to provide information about the layout of the website

We believe that this website meets the requirements of the level 1 and 2 criteria of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (WCAG WAI) 2.0 guidelines. We strive to meet level 3 whenever possible, though we adhere to the accepted standards for accessibility and usability whenever we can although it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website, especially where guidelines are still evolving.
