Website Accessibility Statement
Which website does this statement apply to?
This accessibility statement applies to Consultant Connect’s website at www.consultantconnect.org.uk.
Who runs this website?
This website is run by Consultant Connect Limited, and accessibility was thoroughly considered during the design and build of the site.
We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website and all the colour contrasts (white on blue, white on green, dark grey on light grey etc.) and font sizes meet The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines standards. For example, that means you should be able to:
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard where disabled users cannot use mice or trackpads
- ‘read’ the website using standard website ‘reading’ programmes (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver) where users are visually impaired
Can you adapt your device to make it easier to access our website?
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand. AbilityNet (at https://mcmw.abilitynet.org.uk/) has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How accessible is our website?
We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:
- you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
- some older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
- video streams do not have captions
