Accessibility is a fundamental aspect of good website design, allowing for the information we provide to reach visitors to the site quickly and easily.
According to WC3's Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), "Web accessibility means that people with disabilities can perceive, understand, navigate, and interact with the Web, and that they can contribute to the Web."
The Acas website has been designed to be as accessible and usable as possible for every user.
The site should be compatible with:
- basic operating system screen magnifiers
- speech recognition software, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking
- operating system speech packages.
All templates used on this site have been designed to deliver HTML content in accordance with the WAI Priority 2 (AA) guidelines.
In addition, Acas have ensured that our PDF publications are accessible to the required standards. Should you come across a PDF file that is not currently accessible, please report the issue and we will try to provide an accessible alternative/version of the file within ten working days.
If you require further information on accessibilty, AbilityNet is a UK charity that helps older people and disabled people of all ages use computers and the internet to achieve their goals at home, at work and in educatiion.
