We follow the international accessibility guidelines provided by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and also take user feedback on board. We have worked hard to achieve WCAG 2.1 AA compliance.
Our website is built on WordPress, and we have used the WCAG guidelines to shape how it works and looks.
Getting around our website
We’ve made our website so it works if you are navigating by keyboard or mouse.
We’ve labelled user interface elements (things like input fields for forms, images and tabs), so they work with screenreaders.
We structure pages so that headings and page sections are in logical order and Assistive Technologies like screen readers can understand the content.
We also have a sitemap that we update as new pages are created, so you have more than one way to find what you need.
Content on our website
We try to make content as easy to read as possible. That means we try to use plain language, and use headings to give pages a logical structure. We also measure the readability of the words and sentences we use.
All of our multimedia content should have transcripts, subtitles or captions. Let us know if you find any that does not.
Where PDFs are used, we try to make sure they are accessible PDFs, or we make the content available in a different form.
Viewing our website
Our website is designed to be responsive and work on desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and tablets. The site scales as it zooms, so you can view fonts at larger sizes. If you are using a Windows computer, to zoom in, hold down the ctrl key on your keyboard and press the + key. To zoom out, and hold down ctrl and press the – key .
We use colours that provide enough contrast to stand out. If you have dyslexia, you might find that changing colours or using different fonts or text sizes makes it easier to read.
Our website is produced by the AMA team with freelance developer support. Elements of our website are provided by our CRM provider, PatronBase. If you need any technical detail not provided here, let us know and we can provide more information. We include accessibility in our supplier procurement process.
Sone of our older member-only content isn’t fully WCAG 2.1 AA rated accessible, but we are working on gradually updating this content.
