OUR AIMS

This website is run by the STRUBI Web team. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300%? without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

HOW ACCESSIBLE THIS WEBSITE IS

  • Not all images have a meaningful text alternative.
  • Some images include text as part of the image
  • Some link text isn’t meaningful or out of context

  • Some video content that contains visual information is not accompanied by audio description or text alternative
  • Some video or animation content may contain content that flicks or zooms in and out
