Accessibility

What is accessibility?

Accessibility is the term used to describe whether a website can be used by people of all abilities / disabilities on a range of differing digital devices.

The way a person perceives information is affected by their ability / disability along with how they navigate between website pages. A website can only be classed as accessible if all people, including the elderly and disabled, can use it.

The BBC provide a comprehensive guide covering how to get the most of the accessibility features and assistive technologies available for your computer, operating system and web browser. The following topics are covered:

  • I can’t see very well
  • I am blind
  • I can’t hear very well
  • I find words difficult
  • I find a keyboard or mouse hard to use
