Accessibility

A number of steps have been taken to make the ISG website accessible to all.
 
 
  • A link to this this page appears at the foot of every page.
  • The ability to adjust the font size is clearly available at the foot of every page.
  • Plain text has been chosen instead of images or script for the majority of content.
  • Minimal horizontal scrolling is required when screen zoom is set up to 250%.
  • Every effort has been made to provide alternative text for imagery. Images can be turned off without losing the ability to navigate the site; the site is structured in a way that a lack of images should not impede the understanding of text content.
  • Javascript use is minimal and the site is functional with Javascript turned off; Flash is only used to deliver video content on ISG tv. Silverlight have not been used on this site.
  • Regular cross-browser testing is undertaken with Internet Explorer 6, 7 and 8, Safari, Safari (Mobile), Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Opera (User Mode) on Mac and PC platforms.
  • Small images have been used throughout to benefit those on slower internet connections.
  • The site has been designed with enough contrast to be legible on inverted screens.
  • By optimising the site for a relatively small screen size, a number of devices can have access including laptops, tablets, notebooks and some smartphones.
  • A linear text hierarchy has been used throughout and tested both with tables and style sheets turned off; content has been optimised to work with screen readers.
