Accessibility Features

Our website has been designed with a number of accessibility features. These include:

  • Alternative text
  • Readable and resizable fonts and layout
  • Minimising the use of images
  • Print page options

Alternative text

Images on our website have alternative text attributes, often known as alt text. This means that when an image is used on a web page to convey information its content is also described in the alt text. This means that the image can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers.

Readable and resizable fonts and layout

The LowCVP website uses font sizes that you can control using your web browser.

You can change the text size in Microsoft Internet Explorer by selecting View > Text size followed by your preferred text size from 'Smallest' to 'Largest'. The default setting is 'Medium'.

You can change the text size in Mozilla Firefox by selecting View > Text size followed by 'Increase' or 'Decrease'. To return the text size to its default setting, select 'Normal'.

The website's fonts have been chosen for their legibility on computer screens.

Minimising the use of images

Live text is used rather than graphics wherever possible to reduce page download time and to increase your control over text size.

Print page options

The site has been developed so that pages can be easily printed onto a standard A4 printer. To print one of our pages click File > Print on your browser.
