We want everyone who visits the Feed Your Way website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.
What Are We Doing?
To help us make the Feed Your Way website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. 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 Feed Your Way website.
This means you should be able to:
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).
We’ve also made the website text simple to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How Are We Doing?
We’ve worked hard on the Feed Your Way website and believe we’ve achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.
How to Request Information in an Accessible Format
As this website contains links to resources from third parties and external websites, we cannot guarantee the accessibility of their resources. However, if you need information from Feed Your Way in a different format like accessible PDF, large print, easy read, or audio recording, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’ll consider your request and get back to you within 20 working days.
Technical Information About this Website’s Accessibility
To check the accessibility of this website, we have used a variety of tools that scan web content for any breaches within code, as well as running through a list of accessibility features and checking these across a sample of website pages.
Where Accessibility Software packages flag an error during development, we manually check to see if this is a legitimate error, or if it can be better understood by a human. If a legitimate error has been found, we have worked with our development partners to ensure this is remedied.
Exemptions: Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
Documents for Printing
There are documents on the website that are specifically for printing and are therefore exempt from accessibility regulations.
Third Party Resources and Documents
Where we feel they are beneficial, we have made documents from third parties available to website users. However, these are not all accessible. If you require one of these in an accessible format, please do reach out to us at email@example.com and we will work with our partners to provide these in an accessible format to you.
What We’re Doing to Improve Accessibility
Web accessibility is a developing field, with new guidelines expected to come into place in the coming years. As well as this, content on this website is likely to update, whether this be new features, or new articles. As a result, it is vital that we continue to monitor the website to ensure it maintains a high level of accessibility and inclusivity.
To do this, we use a platform called Monsido; this software carries out a weekly audit of the website, checking for accessibility and functionality issues, flagging any as they arise. We will then work with our partners to ensure any problematic content is updated in a suitable timescale, as well as making sure that any content that is impacted is made available in an alternative format.
