Legal 2.0 is committed to accessibility for all visitors. Our site is reviewed on an ongoing basis and pages are modified to remove accessibility problems for people with disabilities and to make information accessible for all users. All of our content is checked for Plain English, and we aim to use a written style which is straightforward and understandable.
What does that mean in practice?
We follow a list of accessibility guidelines. This includes:
* Maintain a standard layout and navigation system throughout;
* Use headings, paragraphs, lists and other HTML (HyperText Markup Language) to create a logical document structure;
* Allow visitors to resize all text;
* Use plain backgrounds to improve the readability of text;
* Use foreground and background colour combinations which have sufficient contrast and are not known to cause problems for sufferers of colour-blindness;
* Use alt attributes on all images, and title or longdesc attributes where appropriate, and ensure that all alt, title and longdesc attributes are meaningful;
* Design layouts to work satisfactorily at a range of screen resolutions;
* Ensure all hyperlinks use descriptive and meaningful text, avoiding short-hand language like ‘Click here’;
* Provide internal anchors for visitors using screen readers or similar technology;
* Provide access keys to allow keyboard navigation to the main areas of the site;
* Always provide an alternative to scripts or other controls which rely on client device capability.
