We have tried to design www.4you2.org.uk to make it as accessible as possible, whilst still making it visually interesting. To do this, we have addressed a range of known accessibility issues, as outlined below.

Images and 'Alt' tags
Whilst we think it is important to having a colourful and visually interesting site, we have avoided using an excessive amount of images or too many different colours. This not only helps with page download times, but it makes the information on the page clearer and easier to read.
Where images do exist on the site, we have include 'Alt' tags. These are text-based alternatives to the images, so that even if an image doesn't load, you can still see what the image represented. This is particularly important for people with sight or reading difficulties who may be using a screen reader to interpret the web page.
Whilst we are working on having clickable buttons to resize the text for you, this facility is built in to most modern web browsers.
In Mozilla Firefox, you can hold down the 'Ctrl' key on your keyboard and either scroll your mouse wheel or use the plus and minus keys on your keyboard. In Internet Explorer, however, this will zoom in and out of the web page, rather than resize the text. To resize the text, go to 'View', 'Text Size' and select an option to make the text bigger or smaller.
This site has been tested with the following web browsers to ensure compatibility:
Whilst every effort is made to ensure browser compatibility, it remains the responsibility of the user to ensure they are using an up-to-date web browser to make full use of the latest features. We recommend Mozilla Firefox, which is free to download and install.
Coding to standards
Although there is not one single web standard to use when coding a website, we have made sure that our website conforms to W3C standards for HTML and CSS. Adhering to these standards makes our website accessible from a wide range of web browsers and screen readers, and should "future proof" our site for any new browsing devices that are developed in the future.
Throughout the website, we have tried to keep the navigation consistent. Every section shares the same main menu, most with drop-down menus, and a standard top-level menu to navigate to the various main sections or back to the portal page.
Additional navigation appears in the left and right-hand columns, relevant to the page you are viewing.
