Accessibility

This is the official accessibility statement for the GEOAmey website. The GEOAmey website has been built with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. This has been achieved by adhering to best practices, such as compliance with W3C standards.

Standards compliance

If you have any questions or comments, please contact the web team at GEOAmey. 

This accessibility statement records the main steps that we have taken to accommodate the needs of disabled people:

The pages on this website were built in 2016 to comply with a minimum standard of WCAG 2.0, complying with  guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2, H3 and H4 tags for subtitles.

We test the website using the following browsers and is tested regularly to ensure that we are working towards the standards.:

Windows & Mac

  • Internet Explorer 9, 10 & Edge
  • Chrome 33
  • Firefox 28
  • Opera 20

Mobile

  • Apple iOS - Safari 6 on iOS6 and Safari 7 on iOS7
  • Android - Default web browser and Chrome 33

Navigation aids

All pages contain a link to the home page, and the menu system has been constructed in a consistent fashion throughout the website. The additional breadcrumb navigation system and consistent use of banners are designed to reinforce awareness of the location of the page that is being viewed within the website, and to increase overall access to all of the information that is available.


Links

Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail. Links are written to make sense out of context.


Images

All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes. The large banner images that appear on every page of the website contain purely decorative images and this is achieved using a background image in the style sheet and therefore has no ALT attribute. If the website contains complex images such as flow charts or diagrams these will be described separately in plain text form.


Visual design & Fonts

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout and using the browser zoom, provides additional zoom functionality across all content. 

The website full supports mobile and tablet viewing.
