Using this website
The Ricability website has been built with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. This has been achieved by adhering to best practices, such as compliance with W3C standards.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact us. This accessibility statement records the main steps that we have taken to accommodate the needs of disabled people:
The pages on this website have been built to comply with a minimum standard of WCAG AA, complying with all priority A and AA guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
The pages on this site have been tested using the W3C Markup Validation Service, and comply with the guidelines on which this is based.
All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict.
All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2, H3 and H4 tags for subtitles.
All pages contain a link to the home page, and the menu system has been constructed in a consistent fashion throughout the website.
The additional breadcrumb navigation system is designed to reinforce awareness of the location of the page that is being viewed within the website, and to increase overall access to all of the information that is available.
Many hyperlinks have title attributes, which describe the hyperlink in greater detail. Hyperlinks are written to make sense out of context.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include empty ALT attributes. Complex images include inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable (old browsers will display the page without CSS).
High Visibility Page Style
Every page on the Ricability website includes a link at the top of the page that allow visitors to select a "high visibility" page style that should help make the text easier to read, by increasing contrast and making the text slightly larger.
Clicking on the "default" link returns the website to the normal style.
This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
Some visually impaired web users need to take further steps to make websites visible. Internet Explorer and many other browsers enable you to specify your own Cascading Style Sheet that will override the styling of the websites that you view. This will give you full control of the visual appearance of the text in websites. You can find out more about specifying your own CSS file by using the Help function within your web browser software
