Accessibility

This website conforms to Priority Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0) where applicable.

If there is anything on this site — accessibility or validation related — that is not according to the standard, please contact webmaster@hanover.org.uk, who will respond to you as quickly as possible.

The largest supported screen width is 1280px. However, if the device/browser width is less than 1280px, the layout will adapt to present the content in a more optimal format. The smallest supported screen size is 320px.

 

Text size adjuster

The text can to be adjusted from ‘normal’ to ‘larger’ and ‘largest’.

 

Contrast adjuster

The contrast adjuster allows you to toggle from the default style sheet to a high contrast version. The high contrast version will have a black background with inverted text in yellow and white.

 

Screen Reader

Our website has been designed to use screen readers. We use Browse Aloud on the website, which reads web pages out loud.

 

Browser Support

The site uses a system of graded browsers, with a central emphasis on consistency of the design but cannot guarantee “pixel perfect” in any browser, against the concepts, due to the limitations of browsers and operating systems.

The current list of support for browsers is as follows:

Browser Grades

A Grade

IE10, IE9, Firefox (*), Chrome (*), Safari [mac] (*)

B Grade

Firefox (**), Chrome(**), Safari [mac] (**), IE8

C Grade

Safari 3 >, Firefox 2 >

A grade support = full - consistent, rich user experience taking advantage of the full technical capabilities of modern browsers.

B grade support = all content accessible, layout may vary [yet will remain consistent within the browser environment] in comparison to A grade browsers.

C grade support = all content accessible.

 

Accessibility Statement

We have undertaken to use our knowledge and understanding of the ways in which different people access the Internet, to develop a web site that is clear and simple for everybody to use.

 

Validation

We have used HTML5 and CSS that conforms to specification, as laid out by the W3C because we believe that usability and accessibility must have a solid foundation. If anything on this web site does not validate correctly, please contact webmaster@hanover.org.uk
