Using a screen reader

For those using screen readers, the content comes before the navigation on each page - at the start of the content you have the option to skip to the navigation.

All informational images contain an ALT tag and decorative images have a null ALT attribute so only if the image has useful information is it available to screen readers

Easy Printing

The pages on this website are all printer-friendly - just the Mencap Logo and the page content will appear on any printouts you make. All pages are designed using CSS - no tables whatsoever have been used in the design of this website.

Standards compliance

This website conforms to:

W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines priority 1, 2, and 3.
