ActiveStandards is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of disability, capability or technology.
We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our web content and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
This web content endeavours to conform to level Double‑A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.
These guidelines 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 HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant code means any future browsers should also display it correctly.
All content images on this site are provided with descriptive ALT attributes. Graphics that are purely decorative in function have empty ALT attributes, to prevent them from displaying on screen readers. Where images contain important information, such as graphs and charts, alternative information is provided in the form of inline descriptions or tabular data.
All pages contain a link to the home page, sitemap and search box.
Skip navigation (access key S) is available to users of screen readers and speech browsers, to bypass repeated page elements - such as the top and side navigation links - and jump directly to the page content.
The navigation system has been constructed in a consistent fashion to provide clear navigation pathways throughout the site.
If you would like to use a screen reader to read PDF documents you can find out more at the Adobe Access website.
