Accessibility

In keeping with our policy of customers first, and our obligations under the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act), we will ensure that our website is accessible to people who have visual, hearing, motor or cognitive impairments.

Making the website accessible is a core aim of the Quality Assurance Standard for Carbon Offsetting and we will try and ensure that it is usable with a broad range of operating systems, browsers, and specialist assistive technologies.

As a standard, we employ all the following methods to ensure our site is accessible to as many people as possible:

  • All pictures have an alternative text description
  • Our stylesheets allow for text resizing using the View – Text Size option in the browser toolbar for those who do not have javascript enabled.
  • We are committed to Plain English in all our written content
  • The website can be navigated without the use of a mouse
  • A non-serif font is used for easier readability
  • We do not use all-capitals for emphasis
  • We use a hierarchy of heading markups i.e an h1 tag for main headings, h2 for secondary headings etc which makes it easier for screen readers to work out the structure of a page
  • Our site can be viewed in a logical order when all styling is turned off

This website is designed to be mobile responsive, which means that the content will provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).
