At Regard, we are committed to meeting the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act. We make every effort to ensure this website complies with W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. We are continually making improvements to meet these guidelines, and our website has been designed with the following accessibility guidelines in mind:
- Our pages are designed so that they can be viewed at a screen resolution of 800 x 600 pixels. You can change the settings in the control panel if you are a Windows user: Start button > Settings > Control panel>Display>Settings
- The standard support browser versions are:
Internet Explorer 5.0+ Netscape 6.2+
- Page structure is conveyed using header elements.
- The site is free of frames and uses a cascading style sheet for visual layout.
- The stylesheet uses relative font sizes and is written to display pages correctly in most commonly-used browsers. In early versions of browsers and browsing devices that do not support stylesheets at all, the flow of the content has been tested to ensure it entirely retains its sense.
- If you find the text on these pages too large or small you can change the size to suit you. To do this you need to change the settings of your browser in the options, preferences or view menu (depending on which browser you use). For example, if you use Internet Explorer, go to the menu bar and select: View > Text size> (and then choose the size that suits you)
- Alternatively, you can use these controls to change the font size.
- Images that convey important information have alternative text. Where an image is used for a decorative purpose the alternative text will be left blank.
- No information is exclusively conveyed using colour.
- A site map is available to provide information about the layout of the website.
- Links to our policies, including our Privacy Statement, our Terms & Conditions and this Accessibility Statement appear at the bottom of every page.
