JCC Website Accessibility

Our website was built to comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) level 2. Full details of which can be found here.

The colours used throughout the site were tested by our website developers at the early build stage to check that all of the colours used throughout the site could be viewed and read easily by all users. This tool was used to check compliance with the WCAG level 2.

The fonts being used throughout the site futura-pt, Arial and sans-serif are plain, evenly spaced fonts very close to Century Gothic, which is recommended in the Dyslexia Style Guide produced by the British Dyslexia Association. The full guide can be viewed here.

For users who are visually impaired modern browsers accommodate ‘zoom in’ functions, our site is built with this in mind and when a user zooms in, the text is still readable, with the responsive layout adjusting so nothing crashes into each other or overlaps. When you zoom in to 250% the site switches to its mobile version so that all the menus and functions still work and are easy to use.

Throughout the site we have added ‘alt tags’ and descriptions to all images on each page. This helps users who access the site with screen readers that go through each page and tell the user what is on the page.
