Pickfords recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups, including the disabled, the visually impaired and those with motor deficiencies and cognitive disabilities.
This statement explains the accessibility features we have implemented to help you use our website. They help to improve navigation for screen readers, keyboard navigation and text-only browsers among other things.
You can find out about this website's accessibility features in the sections below:
Background, text and colour
Links and navigation
Frames and tables
Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback regarding the accessibility of this site or if you experience any difficulty using it.
We've designed this site with accessibility in mind. Some of the general features include:
· The use of clear, simple language which is easy to understand.
· The use of common web conventions.
· Avoiding the use of blinking or flickering elements.
· The use of validated HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
Careful use of text colours, size and background colours can help people with a range of visual impairments.
Here's what we've done:
While we've used clear, legible font for all text and headings. In the Firefox browser, select View, then Text Size, and then choose increase, or decrease.
This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout. Where possible, we've also made our website navigable, usable and readable if your browsing device does not support style sheets.
Providing alternatives for non-text elements gives visually impaired and screen-reader users wider access to our website.
We've made it possible to use our site without having to view graphics or images. All non-text elements, such as images, animations, symbols, audio, video and multimedia have text equivalents. We've done this by providing descriptive alt attributes for them. Purely decorative graphics or formatting images have empty alt attributes.
The website has been designed to streamline the user experience. Clear navigation and links make it easy for all users to find content quickly.
We've made navigation links consistent between pages throughout the site. The site is also fully accessible using only the keyboard and can be navigated with scripting disabled.
Our website does not use pop-up windows unless they are appropriate. Acceptable cases, for example, are when it is important to see the browser window you've just navigated from in the background.
Clearly labelled tables help readers to understand the content on a page and to fill in content into correct form fields.
This website does not use frames.
We do occasionally use tables for layout but we ensure we follow WCAG guidelines. This means tables do not have any structural mark-up for visual purposes and they make sense when presented in a linear way.
