Our website aims to meet a high level aligned to the “Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1”, where possible. These guidelines are the internationally recognised benchmark for building accessible websites.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines explain how to make websites more accessible for people with disabilities. Following these guidelines helps make websites more user friendly for everyone.
1. Comprehension – Information and user interface components must be made available to the senses. Users must be able to comprehend the information being presented through sight or hearing.
2. Workable - User interface forms, components, controls and navigation must be operable. This means that user must be able to operate the interface (the interface must not require an interaction that a user cannot perform).
3. Understandable - Information and the operation of user interface must be intuitive and understandable. This means that users should be able to understand the information as well as the operation of the user interface.
4. Clear – Content must be clear so that it can be interpreted and used reliably by a wide variety of assistive technologies, such as screen readers.
