McColl’s Digital Accessibility Policy

McColl's is committed to providing digital services that are accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of ability.

This page explains our approach to making this website accessible, the features provided to enhance the site’s accessibility and what to do if you have any questions or feedback for us.

Our website can be viewed on a range of different screen sizes and the size of text can be changed to suit different people. We have also included a search facility and sitemap to help people find the information they are looking for more easily.

Changing settings

You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option. You can also make other helpful changes in your browser, as well as within your computer generally.

To find out what else you can do, we recommend that you read Better Web Browsing: Tips for Customising Your Computer from The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) or visit 'My Web My Way' from the BBC.

Alternative text for images

All appropriate images have been given alternative text.

Heading elements

HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.

Link text

All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.

JavaScript independence

Where JavaScript or other scripts are used for navigation or functionality, an alternative mechanism has been put in place in case your browser does not support these scripts.

Colour contrast

We have checked text and background colour combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient, and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by colour alone.
Layout

We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and have used properly structured mark-up for content. Tables are only used for data. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.

PDFs

In many cases we have provided an HTML version of PDFs on this website, however if you would like to use a screen reader to read PDF documents you can find out more at the Adobe Accessibility Resource Center.
