Meeting web standards

Cater Allen believes the Internet should be easy-to-use for everyone, including those with disabilities. With this in mind, we have adopted a policy of accessibility and have designed this website to meet current web standards.

All future development work carried out on this website will adhere to current Web Standards, as defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

We are doing this to ensure our websites are compliant and can be displayed by W3C standards compliant browsers.

Design guidelines

This website has been designed with these accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • We make sure that navigation throughout the site works in a consistent way.
  • We use a standard web font to make it easy for all to read. In most cases, the size of the font can be adjusted according to the users’ needs, using standard browser and operating system options.
  • We never use colour as the only way to convey information.

Cater Allen has developed its own accessibility guidelines, which take into account standards and accessibility best practice from a number of sources.

Partially sighted visitors

Cater Allen has improved the accessibility of its website for blind and partially sighted customers. We have done this through the use of our own website accessibility guidelines in consultation with the RNIB and by following as far as possible, the guidelines established by the official Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
