Assembly Contracts Limited (ACL) is working to make this website www.acl.co.uk, as accessible as possible, here are some examples of how we have worked on this.
This website was last fully tested on 21st Nov 2023. This was an internal test using Chrome Lighthouse and the Wave Evaluation tool as guides.
The markup language used to build the website (php and html) is correctly structured.
CSS (style sheets) control the layout and look and feel of the website. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.
The website is fully responsive meaning it is designed to be viewed on a wide range of screen resolutions from phones to large monitors.
All images have been given descriptive alternative text tags.
We have used text and background colour combinations that have a high enough contrast to be read without difficulty, compliant with WCAG 2.1 AA, and in most cases AAA.
The page structure is easy to navigate by using a clear menu that is always visible.
A sitemap is available to provide links to all pages on the website. The link to the sitemap can be found in the footer.
You can also usually use the keyboard to increase or decrease text size quickly: Ctrl key and the + (plus) key to increase text on Windows PC. Cmd key and the + (plus) key to increase text on a Mac. Ctrl key and the - (minus) key to decrease text on Windows PC.
The brochure and directions to our website are in pdf format. You will need Adobe Acrobat reader to open and read these. If you do not have access to Adobe Acrobat Reader, you can download it from the Adobe website: Download Adobe Acrobat Reader
Our website may contain links to other websites, we don’t have any control over the accessibility of these sites.
You can find plenty of information online explaining the Disability Discrimination Act for websites, and why it is important but if you have any questions or comments about the accessibility of this website please contact us and we will happily answer any questions you have.
