Firle Beacon is committed to accessibility
At Firle Beacon, we are committed to ensuring that our Website is accessible to the widest possible range of visitors.
By this, we have identified that people with disablities can find certain Websites hard to view correctly due to the way that they are designed and built, and we have therefore acted accordingly to create an online presence that is as accessible as possible.
We have designed and coded the pages on this site to comply with W3C HTML and CSS guidelines to ensure that pages render correctly on users’ browser software, including those making use of assistive technology such as screen readers (which read the page contents aloud to partially-sighted users)
Using this site
This site has been designed using relative font sizes – you can use your browser to enlarge or reduce the size of text as required. In most instances, this is done in your browser’s “View” menu, where you can alter the “Text Size” option to suit your needs. Most browsers also have a keyboard shortcut to carry this out.
All links on this site are clearly designated and we have striven to make sure that they make sense, especially if they were taken out of context. We have avoided use of terms such as “click here” as these could potentially be misleading without an accurate description of what page or file the link points to.
Furthermore, all links make use of use alternative text to describe their destination both visually, and audibly in the case of screen reader software.
Additionally, you can use your Tab key to navigate from link to link on each page.
All images featured on this site have alternative descriptive text associated with them as an alt attribute. This will be read back to partially-sighted users by their screen reader software.
All pages on this site has been designed to separate “form from content” as effectively as possible using the latest W3C standards.
Page sections are marked up clearly using defined headings (h1, h2 etc.) to demarcate important content.
