Website Accessibility

Website Accessibility

Visual accessibility was thoroughly considered during the design and build of the Consultant Connect site. So, for example 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. 

We have also optimised our website so that:

  • it is also navigable by the keyboard for disabled users who cannot use mice or trackpads.
  •  visually impaired users can ‘read’ the website using standard website ‘reading’ programmes.


If you have any further questions, please email or call Laura Mackrory on 01865 261467.
