Steps we’ve taken
Here’s some of the steps we’ve taken to ensure accessible web pages:
- Using alt tags on images
- Using sufficient contrast on colours
- Using CSS to allow the separation of style and content
- Providing alternative content where page elements are not accessible/unsupported
- Captioning or providing transcripts for audio/video content
- Publishing pages generated from valid HTML templates
- Communicating best practice to all web editors, encouraging the use of appropriate headings and clearly labelled links
