Accessibility

Whether you access the Sense website through sight, touch or speech, we want it to work as best as possible for you.

Accessible visually

We hope the website looks vibrant and interesting, but not at the expense of clarity.

We have tested colour contrast ratios and default font sizes for accessibility. You can adapt the website to use larger text and higher contrast colours via your browser or operating system, if you prefer.

Accessible through assistive technology

We are aiming to fulfil WCAG AA.  This is an independent set of guidelines that aims to make the web more accessible.

The Sense website should be compatible with modern screen readers and speech recognition software.  It should respond appropriately to magnifiers, high contrast themes and speech tools that are built into modern operating systems.

AbilityNet offers guidance on how to make websites suit you and your needs.

Accessible content

We know that the technical requirements and visual design are just part of the picture.

The Sense website has been built with the user in mind.  This means that every page has a purpose, and speaks directly to the people who need to access it.

We have refined the structure of the website with the help of our members, with the aim of making it as easy as possible for you to find the information you need.  And we have tried to write each page so that it is as clear as it can be.

How are we doing?

We hope you have a good experience with the Sense website, but know we can always improve.  If you have any feedback , please get in touch.
