ACCESSIBILITY

Accessibility statement for Brancepeth Parish Council website

This accessibility statement applies to the Brancepeth Parish Council website.

This website is run by Brancepeth Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader.

We've also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is

[We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

  • Currently pages will only Zoom to 200% without text spilling off the screen
  • There are issues with contrast on various sub menus (e.g. the Council page) potentially making it more difficult for someone with sight problems
  • Some of the links could be difficult to see for a person with sight problems
  • Due to the way the pages are laid out screen readers take longer to navigate through the text

We have an ongoing program of work to correct these issues and to improve the website in general.
