Accessibility

Our aim is to make the website as usable and accessible as possible, so we hope you can find, access and use the material you're looking for.

Accessibility features

Our website currently include skip to content functionality and careful use of heading tags to help navigation.

Images are carefully labelled with Alt tags.  

Help with seeing our website

The website content is displayed using cascading style sheets (CSS) which means that you can resize the text within the web browser you are using and make it a size that you find easier to read. The BBC has published useful information on how to do this.

Help with reading our website

We generally avoid the use of italics for emphasis in our page content as they can make text more difficult to read.

All colours and contrast were tested before the launch of the site, but if you find our black text on white background unsuitable then you can set your own colours to override this within your browser or within your operating system. The BBC has published useful information on how to do this.

Help with navigating our website

All pages contain a link to the home page by clicking on the University of Worcester logo and all pages include a search box.

We continue to make accessibility improvements to our website in response to user feedback. If you have experienced a problem with the website please email your comments/questions to web@worc.ac.uk
