Accessibility

WPIC recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups. We are currently working on improving our site for everyone, using WCAG guidelines to improve accessibility.

We provide the following accessibility guidance when navigating the WPIC website:

  • Select Tools
    Select Internet Options
    Click on the Accessibility button at the bottom of the panel

Standards compliance

  • The pages on our website conform to many of the A and AA compliance guidelines as specified by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and endorsed by the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB).
  • We strive to obey the spirit of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) of 1995 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC). http://www.disability.gov.uk, http://www.drc-gb.org.
  • While we use the *Bobby Standards to test for accessibility, it is just one aspect of our testing procedure. As a computer programme, the Bobby test is not as reliable as expert evaluation. Pages are also tested in Jaws for Windows.
