SUSTAIN Consultancy believes that every user should have equal access to information on the internet and to that end we are actively working towards increasing the accessibility and usability of the information on this website.
We are aiming to comply with the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium external link) guidelines on accessibility. The W3C promotes good practice amongst the web community via initiatives like WAI Web Contact Accessibility Guidelines 1.0.(external link).
However, many of these guidelines are open to different interpretations and so we would welcome any feedback on the website and any problems, or not, that you encounter.
The main navigation pages can be accessed by the use of Access Keys.
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. If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty in line with accepted best practice.
Readable and resizable fonts and layout
The SUSTAIN website uses font sizes that you can control using your web browser.
