We want everyone who visits the Mealselector website to feel welcome and find the experience easy.
This site provides accessibility help, enabling computer users to make the most of the content and functionality on this website:
What are we doing?
To help us make Mealselector a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. 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 are currently working towards AA for the Mealselector website, and then we will work towards AAA once we have achieved full AA compliance. We are partly compliant with AA standards.
We still need to work on the following sections of AA compliance:
You can change the size of any text on the site by clicking on the 3 A's at the top of the screen. The smallest A decreases the font size, the largest A increases the font size and the medium A resets the text back to default.
If you cannot read any of the text at all, you can enable the speech function on your computer, or there are third party extensions/applications you can download which will read the text on your screen for you.
Here is a guide on how to turn on the speech function on your computer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/guides/speak_text/
