Communisis recognises the importance of providing a Web site that can be used in a variety of ways which do not depend on a single sense, ability, or technology. A Web site which is usable, desirable and accessible for all user groups, including the disabled, is our ongoing commitment.
We are continually working to improve the accessibility and usability of our website. If you experience any difficulties downloading files or accessing a particular page, please contact us (link to the contact email address) for assistance.
The Web site conforms to Level A compliance as established by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
The initiative promotes usability and accessibility for people with disabilities. Details on the World Wide Web Consortium's web accessibility initiative are available at www.w3.org/WAI.
Most browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the Web site. The following access keys are available throughout Communisis Web site:
ACCESS KEY S - Skip navigation
ACCESS KEY 1 - Home page
ACCESS KEY 3 - Site map
ACCESS KEY 0 – Accessibility statement
These access keys have been chosen to follow the UK Government Accesskeys Standard. Wherever possible, they do not conflict with commonly-used screen reader and browser keyboard shortcuts.
Access Keys are selected in different ways in different browsers:
|Windows 7||Internet Explorer 9, 8, 7||Alt + [the accesskey]|
|Windows 7||Chrome 26, 25||Alt + [the accesskey]|
|Windows 7||Firefox 20, 19, 18||Shift + Alt + [the accesskey]|
|Windows 7||Safari 5.1.2||Alt + [the accesskey]|

Note: Some browsers do not support the numbers on the Number Pad being used as Accesskeys. Use the numbers at the top of the keyboard.
Descriptive and meaningful text equivalents are provided for all content images, graphical buttons, symbols and objects. Images are not used to represent text and all headings are styled with the help of CSS and can be resized to suit users needs.
The Web site design has been tested against colour contrast to ensure that all information is still clear. Most of the text is written as white on grey and is perfectly contrasting. The W3C recommends a standard of 500 or greater for the colour difference and a standard of 125 or greater for colour brightness. Both colour difference and colour brightness of the Web site meet the recommended standard.
Relative units have been used in markup language and CSS, therefore the Web site layout accommodates resizing text. If you find the text on this website is too small or too large, you can change it by adjusting your browser's settings or using the shortcut below:
|Microsoft Internet Explorer||Go to the View menu, select Text Size and then Larger/Largest or Smaller/Smallest|
|Mozilla Firefox||Go to the View menu, select Text Size and choose Increase or Decrease|
|Chrome||Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar. Select Settings.
Click Show advanced settings.
In the "Web Content" section, use the "Font size" drop-down menu to make adjustments.
Alternately you can use the zoom options to make everything on a page larger or smaller.
