Accessibilty

Fountains Forestry is committed to making the information and resources that it provides via this website accessible to all users. We aim to be standards compliant and follow general principles of usability and universal design, which should help all visitors to use this website.

This site conforms to the W3C's Website Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Guidelines, Level 2 (AA) and where possible Level 3 (AAA). For more information about the WAI Guidelines see: Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (external website).

Images that convey important information have alternative text equivalents so that the content is accessible to people from various disability groups using a variety of technologies.

Font sizes can be increased or decreased in size by using the "view" option in your web browser.

Style sheets are used to design and lay out web pages (use of colour, font, type and size, etc). Style sheets separate content from markup, making it easier for users to present the content in their preferred way and enables page content to be more effectively transformed for use in alternative input and output devices such as speech synthesizers and Braille displays. Therefore style sheets are recommended, however certain browsers and output devices do not support style sheets and as a result it is possible to turn them off.
