Legal Accessibility

KCOM is actively working towards increasing the accessibility and usability of its websites for disabled users. In doing so, it is acting in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act 2005.

Some of our pages from legacy sites, or those developed and maintained by 3rd parties, might not currently conform to these standards.

Links

  1. Many of the links have been given title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already describes the target.

Images

  1. All content images in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
  2. Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline description to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.

Visual design

  1. This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
  2. This site uses only relative font sizes which are compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
  3. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
