Hand Of’s commitment to website accessibility
We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible.
We want everyone to be able to us use it, no matter what their impairments and which technologies they use.
We have created the site taking best practice web accessibility guidelines into account, including WCAG 2.0, WCAG 2.1 and BS 8878.
Adapting your experience to your needs
We have made the site as usable as we can, but you might have a better experience if you change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs.
For example you might change the site’s colours, increase the text size, or have the site spoken aloud.
For help customising your experience using accessibility features already on your computer, or by installing extra assistive technologies, try these sites:
- AbilityNet’s My Computer, My way
- The Web Accessibility Initiative’s Better Web Browsing: Tips for Customising your Computer
Known problems with this site’s accessibility
While we have done our best to follow best practice, we are a small charity without a dedicated IT team. If you encounter any problems or find that part of our site is not accessible, please get in touch and we will be happy to help you.
We are currently working to fix:
- Some websites we link to may not have been tested for their accessibility
- We are continuing to test the site’s accessibility across different browsers. It has been built in WordPress using Firefox, and we ourselves often use Safari or Chrome. The site may be less accessible in other browsers.
If any of these problems stop you getting the information or service you need from our site, please contact us and we will be happy to help you.
This website was developed in July – November 2020, and launched in November 2020.
Problems resolved since November 2020 will be listed here:
