Making our website accessible
We want everyone who visits the Retiready website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.
Updated 26 July 2016
What are we doing?
We've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 to help us make the Retiready website a positive place for everyone. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities and user friendly for everyone.
The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Retiready website.
A range of resources are available to assist with the accessibility of our websites. These include;
- Screen enlargers or magnifiers,
- Screen readers - software or apps that present page content as speech, this includes text, images, buttons and menus,
- Speech recognition or voice recognition - software or apps that allows you to interact with your computer using your voice,
- Speech synthesisers (text-to-speech or TTS systems) - software or apps that speak out loud what you are typing with your keyboard, so you can check what you're typing as you go.
Where possible, we aim to support the use of assistive technologies to make our website as accessible as possible.
How are we doing?
We've worked hard on the Retiready website and believe we've achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to keep this up but if you do find any problems, please let us know
