The Enviro Engineer is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. I am continually improving the user experience for everyone, and applying the relevant accessibility standards.
The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. This website is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
The Enviro Engineer is continually striving to ensure the following:
Text should be written in as simple a way as possible whilst still conveying the correct meaning.
Meaningful images in the text should have alternative descriptions which allow screen readers to explain what the image holds.
Uploaded and linked documents on the site, such as PDFs should be created in an accessible way, allowing them to be read by screen readers, with the proviso that this may not be the case with older, archival material which would be prohibitively expensive or difficult to update.
I take care when designing the site that good levels of contrast are used between text and background colours and that alternative explanations are provided for embedded video or audio content.
If you have any comments on the accessibility of the website, or would like to request content in a different form, please contact us.
