Moorfields NHS Foundation Trust believes very strongly that the information on our website should be easy to access by anyone.
Our website has been designed and built to meet the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) web content accessibility 'AA' guidelines.
We use alternative (alt) text labels on all the graphics on the website. These appear as you hover over the graphic with a mouse and provide a description of the graphic which can be read in screen readers.
All text links have been written so that they make sense when read out of context (eg by screen readers).
Visitors can easily increase the size of text on the website by clicking on the ‘Increase text size’ link at the top of any page.
Site visitors can also change the size of the text on screen by using the settings in their browser as follows:
- using Internet Explorer, select View > Text Size and select the preferred size
- using Netscape, select View > Text Zoom and select the preferred percentage size
- using Mozilla Firefox, select View > Text size and select increase or decrease.
Text only version
A text only version of our site is available by clicking on the 'Text view' link at the top of any page. Clicking on 'Text view' removes all the graphics and formatting from the site. This facility is of particular value for visitors who want to magnify the text up to a very large size (there are no overlapping elements), want a higher contrast (black on white) display, or who want to apply their own stylesheet.
The colours used on the site have been carefully selected to provide appropriate contrast between text and background. They have also been checked to ensure they work for those with different colour blindness types.
