Accessibility

FARA believes it is important to ensure maximum accessibility for users of its website. The site therefore conforms as far as possible to W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) standards. Specific ways in which we support accessibility are as follows.

Typeface

The size of text can be modified using browser interfaces.

Content

Content across the site has been written and formatted to make it as accessible as possible. Features used include:

  • descriptive headings
  • plain English
  • clearly signposted links
  • verbal alternatives to any colour-based coding or navigation.

Layout

Presentation and layout are based on cascading style sheets to ensure that content is clearly structured and fully compatible with assistive devices.

Images

All images (unless part of the visual design) are tagged with descriptive text. 

Site navigation

All pages include links to the home page and to a site map.
