snvb works towards meeting the Website Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

The site is tested regularly to ensure that we are working towards the standards. The site also undergoes user testing by blind and partially sighted users.

We test the website using the following browsers:

  • Internet Explorer 9+
  • Firefox
  • Chrome
  • Safari
  • Opera

Changing the font size

You are able to change the size of the font so the text is easier for you to read, the option to do this is on all pages.

Image Alt text and accessibility

As standard we only use Alt text where an image conveys essential information for the meaning of the page – for example a diagram about how to do something. Where an image is purely aesthetic we don’t add alt text as this is superfluous information, and extra ‘noise’ that someone using a screenreader will have to get through before reaching the essential information on a page.
