Accessibility

The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) recognises that sight impaired Internet users can find websites difficult or even impossible to use because of the way that they have been designed. This website has been developed using suggested best practices in order to promote accessibility.

The site is constructed in such a way that screen readers can navigate the site successfully. This includes adding descriptive text to navigable images and summary text in the website code for tables included on the site. Also, the content of the site can be read in a logical manner, even when styles are disabled.

The main body copy is scaleable so that it can be increased in size if necessary without affecting the site's appearance. Also, the colours of the text and background contrast sufficiently so that legibility is optimised and navigable links use visual identifiers that are not reliant on colour alone.
