This is the official accessibility statement for the CEUD website. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to provide us with feedback.
Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key.
All pages have the following accesskeys (a subset of the UK Government standard):
- s - Skip to page content
- 1 - Home page
- 2 - News and events
- 3 - Site map
All pages on this site were developed to reach conformance rating Double A with WCAG and comply with all priority 1 and 2 checkpoints of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines v 1.0.
All pages validate as XHTML 1.1 Strict.
All pages use metadata (rel=prev, next, etc.) to assist with navigation on those browsers that support it.
Many links have title attributes (all the Next, Prev links in the top and bottom navigation bars) - these describe the link in greater detail.
In page links are written to make sense out of context.
The site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for layout and visual formatting (with rare exception for certain components of some pages). If your browser does not support CSS or your wish to turn it off then all pages are still easily readable and actionable.
All fonts are scalable - most browsers provide a means to specify default base text-size.
The most popular software that is useful for assisting access to Web sites is listed below. Some are free, some are commercial but have free demos.
