Learning Disability Devon Designed by people with a learning disability for people with a learning disability

Accessibility

Contemporary operating systems and web browsers now have their own built in accessibility aids (or assistive technologies) to help you access the internet.

The BBC’s My web My Way provides advice and help to all those people who would benefit from making changes to their browser, operating system, or computer to be able to view the web in a more accessible way. Please note that these BBC pages are now archived but remain a useful resource.

The site is not only for those with disabilities (visual, hearing, motor, cognitive or learning impairments) but also, for example, for those people with minor vision impairments who would not consider themselves to have a disability.

Translation

If you would like information on our website translated into another language, you may find one of the services listed below meets your needs. However we cannot guarantee the accuracy of any external website or free website translators.

We want everyone who visits our website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

What are we doing?

To help us make our websites a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for our website.

We’ve worked hard on our website and believe we’ve achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility.

Any feature that might stop the website attaining AA or a change in browser technology should be reported to Learning Disability Devon. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.
