Accessibility

This website was created by TVS Media on behalf of Instarmac Group plc and has been developed with accessibility in mind. Accessibility Features

The following accessibility features have been implemented on our site:

  • Skip to content, menu and top of page links to help screen readers access content quickly.
  • Clear logical navigation.
  • A full sitemap to find content quickly.
  • CSS to separate style from content so that the same content is available to ALL viewers regardless of how the content is accessed.
  • Sizable text for comfortable reading.
  • Standards compliant, valid, semantic markup to ensure compatability across many browsers, screen readers, alternative media-types and assistance software.

Accessibility and Usability of Our Site
Our website strives to uphold the principles and best practice of the WCAG 1.0 AAA guidelines. While we aim to comply with the WCAG guidelines, we recognise that web technology has moved on since their creation, and a number of them are less applicable than at their time of publication. Our central objective is users finding our site accessible and usable in practice. Attention to the accessibility of the code, it's validity and useability, plus end-user testing in multiple browsers ensures that this is the case.

Our Site's Code
The site has been built to comply with standards XHTML and CSS2. At every stage the code has been checked for accessibility using a range of automated and manual checks. In older browsers where CSS is not supported it will appear as an unstyled document. All information and functionality will still be accessible.

JavaScript
This site makes occasional use of JavaScript to enhance the user experience, however, no part of the website is reliant on it and all content is available to all users regardless of whether JavaScript is enabled on their browser or not.

Navigation and Quick Links
Navigation is held in ordered lists to be meaningful to speach browsers. There are hidden links the top of every page which when triggered will skip directly to the main page content or to the navigation list as required. The bottom of every page contains links to the navigation list and to jump tp the top of the page. All these links are visible when the site is viewed without a stylesheet and will be spoken by screen-reading software.

Ultimately the best testers for accessibility are its users. We welcome feedback on the accessibility and usability of our website. If you have had any problems or any issues while using our site, we would like to hear about it. Email, phone and address details are on our contact us page.
