Accessibility Guidelines v1.0
HTML accessibility standards
Our HTML Accessibility Standards are a set of specific best practices for yechte's web content.
Our site conforms to W3C‘s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, level A. We strive to get as close as possible to level AA.
These standards were developed specifically for UK and EU audiences and for use with technology commonly available in these markets. They are intended for use by the public however they can also be referenced by anyone involved in the design and development or digital products or services.
The core purpose is to inform, educate, and provide information without which there would be no purpose for the site or document.
We aim to provide a core experience to as broad an audience as possible, allowing users to choose the software and devices that work best for them in a broad range of circumstances.
Equally a robust site or application in the more traditional sense minimises its dependencies. The minimum dependency for a web site should be an internet connection and the ability to parse HTML.
Minimum text size
Having a minimum text size will reduce the number of users who need to make use of browser based text resize or page zoom. This is a particular issue with an ageing audience, many of whom will not consider themselves as having low vision and there will not have access to assistive technology or be familiar with browser tools to resize content.
All our core content has a minimum calculated size of 15px.
To aid discoverability all links on our site are made self-evident with their visual style.
- a different colour, meeting contrast standards, to the surrounding text
- when hovered over links should have a change in style
If there is sufficient contrast between foreground and background colours, particularly between text and its background but also applicable to the keys of graphs and similar, then users with moderately low vision or with colour deficiencies that affect contrast to a minor degree are more likely to be able to access our content without requiring additional assistive technologies. All our text passes the colour visibility test.
We have checked text and background colour combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient for users with visual impairments. We have also ensured that information is not referenced by colour alone.
All images on the website have an alt attribute. For the editorial significant images, there is a non-null alt attribute value, or a text alternative in the preceding or following content.
All forms should have a submit button to provide a clear call to action. This is particularly important to users with cognitive disabilities, but is also beneficial to low vision users as an indication of the end of the form.
We have provided ‘Skip to main content’ links to allow direct access past the navigation menu to the page’s main content. The full website, its menu and all sections are fully accessible and navigable by using a computer keyboard only. This makes our website keyboard operable.
