Website Accessibility

VSNW wants to ensure that its internet portal is and remains as accessible as possible to all users. 

 

VSNW seeks to ensure that our web portal conforms to (World Wide Web Consortium) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) level 1 and aspires to reach level 2.  These guidelines were adopted by the Web in 1999 with version 2 adopted in 2006.

 

Level one ensures that at least a minimum level of access is guaranteed. Level two removes many of the barriers for access across a range of disabilities and is seen as good practice

 

In developing this site we have minimised accessibility issues at the design level by removing aspects around Flash, Multimedia and minimising the need for images. We have considered colours and page design and language.  We have contacted a number of user groups through our members to suggest and test our accessibility. However if you have an issue or suggestion for improving our web site accessibility please contact info@vsnw.org.uk

 

VSNW along with our web design partner are committed to the monitoring and improving of our site accessibility.  We regularly check and monitor the site.

VSNW will accept documents for down load from third parties only if they meet the level one WCAG criteria.  VSNW will link to sites that meet the WCAG level one criteria, those that fail will be highlighted.
