Why is accessibility important to us?
From the beginning, Suffolk Resilience Forum was created on the foundation that every individual should have fair and equal opportunities. This is why accessibility considerations are integrated into our web builds and other projects we create through Suffolk Resilience Forum. Set as one of our key goals, we strive to ensure equitable access for all measured by achieving high levels and versions accredited by WCAG. We also use a robust testing system to ensure we meet criteria for accessibility including HTML and CSS validations as well as other validations such as alt tags on images and more.
Whilst working through any brand development, Suffolk Resilience Forum consciously and consistently checks that accessibility guidelines are being met throughout the design stage before moving through to build.
This accessibility statement applies to Suffolk Resilience Forum website – https://www.suffolkresilience.com/
This website is run by Suffolk Resilience Forum. We’re committed to ensuring all visitors can access our web services and we want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.
How accessible is the site?
We are currently undergoing multiple changes to ensure that the level and version of accessibility is met by WCAG standards. We have completed this with additional features to enhance users’ experience on the site to be an on-going enhancement.
How you can improve your visit to the site
Modern operating systems have magnifier software built in. The following article details how to use a screen magnifier on a Windows machine or alternatively on a Mac computer follow these instructions. These will enable your visit to the site to be better for those that are visually impared or struggle to read smaller text.
Non-accessible content (if any available)
- Some of our videos do not have a caption, so some people will be unable to access the information or content.
- Some of our input fields are missing their descriptions. This means it is hard for some assisted technologies to know what the field is for.
- On some of our links, the only identifiable mark that it is a link is a colour change. This makes it difficult for people who cannot perceive colour to know that a link is in use.
- On some of our pages labels are used that are not connected to a form control. This makes it difficult for assisted technologies to know how to refer to each label when presenting a form control.
- Some of the tabbing sequences on our pages are not logical. This makes it hard for users who rely upon a keyboard to navigate our website.
- On the majority of our webpages, in certain areas the colour contrast is insufficient. This can present a problem for users with low-vision or colour-blindness.
