The RSH websites have been designed and developed with the needs of people with reduced vision and disability in mind. We have considered international guidance and best practice on web accessibility at all stages.

- TEXT RESIZE

- SCREEN READER SUPPORT
The website is marked up using semantic HTML with Aria labels allowing for the website to be accessed using assistive technologies such as screen readers.
It is our aim to deliver all content on the website to WCAG 2.1 AA compliance where possible. We regularly test our compliance to the WCAG guidelines using a variety of automated and manual web and software based accessiblity testing systems. The checkpoints we test against are taken from the technical standard Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
We try our best to ensure we test with a range of technologies, but we can’t commit to testing every browser version with every version of assistive technology, nor testing on every operating system version or mobile handset type. We focus on testing with more recent technology, as newer assistive technologies provide the best accessibility support for the user.
We’re always working to make improvements to the accessibility and usability of the website, especially where content and delivery is reliant on third party providers. Our websites provide links to content that are located on other websites which are not under our control. We do try to ensure that we select links which are compliant with accessibility guidelines where possible.
