Our approach to accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to bishopstachrbook.com.

This website is run by the Bishop’s Tachbrook Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

Bishop’s Tachbrook Parish Council is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.

This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard. Through the continuous design and development of the website we endeavour to:

  • create content that can be presented in different ways (for example simpler layout) without losing information or structure
  • make it easier for users to see and hear content including separating foreground from background
  • make all functionality available from a keyboard
  • provide users enough time to read and use content
  • avoid designing content in a way that is known to cause seizures or physical reactions
  • provide ways to help users navigate, find content, and determine where they are
  • make it easier for users to operate functionality through various inputs beyond keyboard
  • make text content readable and understandable
  • make Web pages appear and operate in predictable ways
  • melp users avoid and correct mistakes
  • maximize compatibility with current and future user agents, including assistive technologies
