Accessibility Policy

Our obligations under the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act), ensure that we will do our best to make sure our website and web resources can be accessed by all users.  Making our website accessible is a core aim of Action on Prejudice and we will try our best to ensure that it is usable with a broad range of operating systems, browsers, and specialist assistive technologies.

As a standard, we employ all the following methods to ensure our site is accessible to as many people as possible:

  • Ensure that all pages can be read out loud with dedicated software to any visitor
  • All pictures have an alternative text description
  • There is an easy to use text-resizer on all pages for those with javascript enabled on their computers. Our stylesheets allow for text resizing using the View – Text Size option in the browser toolbar for those who do not have javascript enabled.
  • We are committed to Plain English in all our written content
  • Our site has been designed without the use of tables except where we need to represent normally tabulated content i.e timetables
  • The website can be navigated without the use of a mouse
  • A non-serif font is used for easier readability
  • We do not use all-capitals for emphasis
  • We use a hierarchy of heading markups i.e an <h1> tag for main headings, <h2> for secondary headings etc which makes it easier for screen readers to work out the stucture of a page
  • Our site can be viewed in a logical order when all styling is turned off
