WIAL UK is committed to providing this website that is accessible by all users, regardless of circumstances. We recognise that our users have a range of needs. As such, we are continually reviewing our content to increase the accessibility and usability of our website. If you have any question or suggestion regarding the accessibility of this website, or if you have any difficulty in using any part of it, please contact us. Further information can be found below.
Compliance to Standards
We aim at achieving the conformance to Level A of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG) on all contents across our website. More information on these guidelines is available at https://www.w3.org/WAI/intro/wcag.php. While we aim at providing full accessibility to all content on our website over a period of time on a best effort basis, some older pages may not always meet all the standards outlined here and, due to restrictions in the functionality of the Content Management System, the nesting of heading levels may not be correct. Furthermore, some of the third-party content, such as other websites to which we provide links, may not be accessible as our website.
How do I make the text bigger so that it is easier for me to read?
Some users might find screen texts easier to read by increasing the size at which texts are displayed. In order to do this, you should adjust your browser’s settings.
- For Google Chrome, go to View and then select Zoom in and/or Zoom Out. Or, refer to “Change text, image and video sizes (zoom) – Chrome Help“.
- For Internet Explorer, go to View > Text size > select the size you want. Or, refer to “How to set the zoom level in Internet Explorer 9“.
- For Mozilla Firefox, go to View, select Zoom and then select Zoom In and/or Zoom Out. Or, refer to “Font size and zoom – increase the size of web page | Firefox Help“.
- For Opera, go to View > Zoom > select the size you want. Or, refer to “Zoom – Opera Help“.
The following features improve navigation for screen-reading users, keyboard navigation and users of text-only browsers.
At the start of every page is a short menu that allows you to jump to the main content of that page.
Sighted users who use the keyboard to navigate will see these links appear on screen when using the Tab key to navigate through the page.
Structured, semantic markup: Headings and navigation menus
HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H3 tags for subtitles.
Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily.
All content images used in this site include alternative descriptions. Purely decorative graphics include empty alternative descriptions.
If you wish to override the site’s colours, you can import your own style sheet within your browser preferences.
You may change the font size of this document to your preference through your browser:
- In Internet Explorer, select View, then Text Size, and then your preferred size
- In Firefox 3 and above, select Zoom Text Only to only change the text size, or unselect it to change the size of the entire page.
- If you wish to override the site’s font settings, you can import your own style sheet within your browser preferences.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the use of structured semantic markup ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.
You may import your own stylesheet into this website.
