Duraweld Accessibility Statement

 

Introduction
At Duraweld, we are committed to ensuring that our website can be accessed and enjoyed by everyone. We are fully committed to meeting the provisions of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA). We make every effort to ensure our website is accessible to people with special needs, including those with visual, hearing, cognitive and motor impairments.

 

Standards compliance & validation
We strive to make our website adhere to priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3 Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
·         All pages will use XHTML 1.0 Transitional mark-up, validated using the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C's) validation service.
·         All pages will use structured semantic mark-up where possible.
·         All pages will use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS2) for presentation, validated using the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C's) validation service.
·         All pages are checked in accordance with DDA, W3C and Section 508 guidelines and adhere/comply to these guidelines as far as possible.

 

Navigation & navigation aids
·         Primary site navigation is located at the top ad left hand column of each page.
·         Secondary navigation elements are generally contained within the user journey of the page content itself. These vary from page to page.
·         A link to the home page is available by clicking on the home link within the primary site navigation bar at the top of each page.
·         Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists and styled with CSS.
·         Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail.
·         Links are written so as to make sense out of context.
·         Link text is never duplicated. Two links on the same page with the same text always point to the same address.
·         When the site is viewed in a text-only browser, a ‘skip to content’ link becomes visible at the top of each page.
·         Forms have their labels explicitly associated with their controls, to aid users of certain screen readers and speech browsers

 

Policies & terms
Links to policies, including the privacy statement, terms and conditions, and accessibility statements, appear at the footer of every page

 

Images
All content images used in our sites include descriptive ALT tags. Purely decorative graphics include a ‘null’ ALT attribute.

 

Layout
·         Sites use Cascading Style Sheets for visual layout, validated using the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C's) validation service;
·         Stylesheets are written to display pages correctly in most commonly-used browsers. In browsers that do not support stylesheets, the flow of content has been tested to ensure it completely retains its sense;
·         The websites use relative font sizes. You can resize the text using your browser. This will not disrupt the layout of the page you are viewing.

 

Moving image & text
No content on the websites we produce features blinking text or images, and nothing will cause your screen to flicker. We keep the use of animation to a minimum and ensure that it is illustrative of existing content. Where Flash animation is used, a static non-Flash image is provided as an alternative.

 

Browser support
Duraweld accept that is not possible to produce web pages uniformly across all browsers. Therefore, our website offers  three ‘Levels of Support’ that are acceptable for different browsers and versions. The Levels of Support are as follows:

Level 1 – Supported Web Browser
·         All site content and functionality does work.
·         Variations to presentation of content is minimised.
·         CSS is rendered by supported web browsers, so that a fully-styled version of the page is presented to the user.
·         Pages are developed to maximise the user experience for users of the web browser with the highest proportion of users (IE7 at present).

Level 2 – Partially Supported Web Browser
·         All core content is readable and usable with the exception of the Vinyl Ring Binder Configurator.
·         Navigation functionality works.
·         Any degradation to (client-side) application functionality is graceful.
·         Any degradation to presentation does not obscure content.

Level 3 – Unsupported Web Browser
·         No support or testing is carried out for Level 3 browsers.
·         All web browsers not specifically listed in the support table are unsupported.
