Bournecoast recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups. We are striving to comply with the Priority 1 and 2 accessibility checkpoints across our web presence, as established in the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) web accessibility initiative (WAI). The WAI promotes a high degree of usability and accessibility for people with disabilities.
The W3C promotes good practice amongst the web community via initiatives like the WAI Web Contact Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (http://www.w3.org/WAI/). We are continually making improvements to meet these guidelines, and our website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:
- Our pages are designed so that they can be viewed at a screen resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels or higher.
- Images that convey important information have alternative text added - allowing users accessing the page via a screen reader or similar assistive technology can form a better understanding of the page and its content.
- A site map is available to provide information about the layout of the website.
- Forms follow a logical 'tab' sequence.
We aim to continually improve the usability and accessibility of this site. If you have any questions or feedback regarding the accessibility of this site, or if you experience any difficulty using it, please contact us on 01202 437 888.
