Related policies and statements
Please take the time to familiarise yourself with our other policies:
We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
We have provided the following accessibility features on the site
Web Accessibility Initiative
This website strives to achieve Triple-A accessibility of the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0), employing best practice techniques where certain Priority 3 checkpoints have become outdated.
The WCAG 1.0 explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for XHTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant XHTML / CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.
Whilst Alliance Healthcare comply with known accessibility and usability guidelines, it is not always possible to do so to the letter of each checkpoint. Browsers and access technologies have outgrown many of the difficulties that once needed guidelines to overcome them, rendering some checkpoints obsolete.
In light of this, we are continually developing solutions that ensure the website conforms to the spirit of each checkpoint, bringing together a high standard of practical accessibility and usability throughout the website. The following exceptions are also in line with the new version of the accessibility guidelines to be released soon.
We don't use access keys. To explain why not, we recommend that you read Nomensa's article.
If you experience any kind of problem when using this website, or you have any other feedback, we'll be glad to hear from you.
