This website is owned and updated by the GP Practice it represents. However the tools to edit it and add content are provided by Dales Web Design (DWD). As DWD we have prepared this statement as it is our aim for as many people as possible to be able to use this website. We have installed a WCAG2.1 accessible template which means you should be able to:
- Navigate the website using a keyboard
- Navigate the website using a screen reader
- Increase/decrease text size
- Pause website animations
- Highlight all links in website content
- Convert text to dyslexia friendly and visually impaired fonts
- Increase text spacing
- Alter the colour contrast of website elements
We’ve made the website compatible with other accessibility tools and plugins such as Browsealoud, and others. This means you should also be able to:
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
