Website accessibility

We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible to provide the best service to all in the community.

Our website is compatible with popular screen reading software and can be navigated using only a keyboard. The BBC My Web website provides useful hints/tips/guides to assist you if you have difficulty using the internet or have any accessibility issues.

Mobile devices

When visiting our website on a mobile device (smart phone or tablet), a mobile-friendly version of our website will be displayed. If you prefer to view the desktop version of our site, tap the 'Desktop site' button which is located at the bottom of each page.

Technical standards we are currently meeting

Our site complies with priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3 web content accessibility guidelines 1.0, level AA. Webpages also validate to HTML 4.01 transitional and use valid cascading style sheets.

Some systems/applications that are embedded or linked to from our website use technology that is not always compliant with accessibility standards. Often this is because the system is performing a specific job that is very difficult to achieve in an accessible way. Accessibility issues for these systems are currently being addressed and we will ensure that any future systems adhere to web accessibility guidelines.
