Accessibility

We want to be sure that anyone is able use our website and view and purchase our beautiful furniture. So when we were creating the site, we strived to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) which have been developed through a process of cooperation between the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), individuals, organisations and governments throughout the world.

Here is an overview of the key accessibility features that have been built into our website:

Text can be resized

The text on our website can be increased or decreased in size to meet your needs. How this is done, depends on which web browser you are using. The steps needed to be taken are outlined for the major browsers listed below:

Google Chrome – Click the Customize and control Google Chrome icon  in the top right hand corner of your browser. Then click on + or – next to Zoom

Microsoft Edge – Click on the Settongs and more icon (or on your keyboard Alt X). Then click on + or – next to Zoom

Colour contrast improvements

When choosing colour schemes, we haven’t just selected colours that look pretty. The contrast between colours must enhance the readability of the site content so as many people as possible can read the content. An example of how colours have been tweaked to improve contrast and readability is shown below.

All our text on a background colour meet the current Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Screen readers

To enhance site performance when it is being viewed with screen reader software

  • ARIA landmark roles are included to facilitate landmark based scanning.
  • All links are contextual. For example, “Continue reading” is changed to “Continue reading article name”.
  • Ensured that key elements are not hidden (using for example the code “display: none;” ).
  • Inclusion of skip links to make it easy for website visitors to skip directly to the site navigation or content.
  • Element focus styling has been made more obvious. For example a dotted line will appear around an item when it is being selected as shown below:
