Accessibility

At the digital Champion website we have made every effort to make our website accessible to the widest possible audience and have taken into account all of the newest standards and guidelines.

We want to ensure that everyone can use this site, regardless of technical ability, hardware, software, or any sensory or physical impairment.

We have an accessibility menu available by clicking on the visual impairment icon from any screen. This allows users to alter the font size, the fonts itself, the colours and allows users to view images in greyscale as well as highlighting links.

For users with a visual impairment that use screen readers the site will automatically skip to the content, rather than reading the menu items first.

Every effort has been made to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C)

Useful Links

Ability Net has a list of useful software to help people see and hear the content of webpages.

NVDA (NonVisual Desktop Access) is a free “screen reader” which enables blind and vision impaired people to use computers. It reads the text on the screen in a computerised voice. You can control what is read to you by moving the cursor to the relevant area of text with a mouse or the arrows on your keyboard.

NVDA can also convert the text into braille if the computer user owns a device called a “braille display”.

Dragnifier Free software for Windows, one click or keypress will bring up a computerized lens, which lets you see every last detail on your screen at 2x, 4x, even 8x the original size.

Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 covers a wide range of recommendations for making Web content more accessible.
