CEDR Accessibility policy
We aim for a consistently high level of usability for our different audience types across our website, following best-practice accessibility guidelines.
Our commitment to ensuring accessibility for everyone
CEDR is committed to making sure our website is accessible to as many users as possible. In all instances, unless clearly stated, our website will conform to the level ‘AA’ Compliance of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.1).
Our guiding principles for accessibility
- We use live text in appropriately marked up HTML instead of graphics or PDF documents across the site to describe the core service offering of CEDR
- During the website construction, we ensured robust testing on any colour variations to ensure the contrast between copy and the background are accessible to people with disabilities.
- All pages are built on a responsive framework to avoid the need for any horizontal scrolling across a wide range of devices ranging from desktops to mobile phones.
- We use a consistent navigation menu and clear signposting across the site
- We aim to comply with the W3C Web content accessibility guidelines where possible
- 'Alt Tag' compliance - Alternative text provides a text alternative to non-text content, for example, images in web pages. The CEDR.com website has Alt Tags correctly applied throughout the site, meeting key accessibility guidelines.
