Accessibility

We have made every effort to make our website accessible and easy to use for everyone, no matter what browser you choose to use, and whether or not you have any disabilities.

The site's layout takes into account users who are blind or visually impaired. It is fully compatible with popular screen reading software. If you have difficulties using a mouse, the site can be navigated using only a keyboard.

Navigation shortcuts

There is a short menu at the start of every page that allows screen reader users to jump directly to the most important parts of the page, including main content and navigation.

Changing text-size

Most browsers feature the ability to resize text on screen to a level you feel comfortable with.

This tool is available in the menu of various browsers as follows:

Browser Instructions
Internet Explorer 7 (PC) Page > Zoom
Internet Explorer 5, 5.5, 6 (PC) View > Text Size
Firefox, Netscape 8 View > Text Size
Opera View > Zoom
Netscape 6, 7, Mozilla View > Text Zoom
Safari (Mac) View > Make Text Bigger

Alternatively, if you are using a modern browser and have a mouse with a wheel you can also alter the size of the text size by holding down ctrl (PC) or command (Mac) on your keyboard while scrolling up and down with the mouse wheel.

Contrast

We have made every effort to ensure that we have used sufficient contrast on the Let's Get Together website but if you notice any colour combinations that cause you problems, please contact us.

Links

If a link opens in a new window, this will be indicated by a pop-up title text.

Every effort has been made to ensure that link names are distinct and not repeated on pages.

Standards

In technical language, all pages on this site should be valid to Extensible Hyper Text Mark-up Language (XHTML) 1.1 and use structured semantic markup and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS).

This website conforms to the Guidelines endorsed by the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB). and supports the Worldwide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, Level AA, to ensure a Web accessibility standard has been achieved and is maintained.

We strive to obey the spirit of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC).
