We want to make our new website open and accessible to the widest possible audience.

CLIC Sargent aims to provide a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience.  Our new site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS.  The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.  Our navigational structure has been designed to get users of the site to relevant information as quickly and easily as possible.

Our accessibility aim

Our initial aim is to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.  Meeting these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people. You can read a brief explanation of the guidelines here.

While we are working towards this accessibility aim, we know that in some areas of the site we have further to travel than others.  We’ll be addressing these issues as time and resource allows.

How to get the most from our website

Our website works on a range of different screen sizes, and you can change the size of text to make it easier to read.  One of the best sources of information on how to do this, and other ways to use your browser toimprove your web experience, is the BBC My Web My Way site.  

The Web Accessibility Initiative has a more comprehensive set of information here.
