Accessibility

Accessibility statement

Provident attempts at all times to make their website as accessible as reasonably possible to all users in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.

 

To achieve this, our website has been developed in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines where possible. These guidelines have been published by the World Wide Web Consortium to promote accessibility.

 

The techniques we have used to improve accessibility are as follows.

 

Use of stylesheets

We have used cascading stylesheets to control the visual elements of the website

 

Text Size

This site uses only relative font sizes and therefore is compatible with the user-specified text size option in visual browsers. The text size can be changed through the View > Text Size menu in your browser menu.

 

Alt text

All images that are used to illustrate content include the alt attribute to provide descriptive text alternatives. Images that have a decorative function have an 'empty' alt attribute.

 

Javascript

The site does use some JavaScript but this does not affect accessibility.

 

Site features

  • Consistent navigation
  • Scalable text
  • Clearly labelled graphics and image maps
  • No flickering or strobing graphics
  • Cross browser compatible

Web Standards

The site has been built according to the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 level A and Bobby AAA accessibility standards where possible.

 

Browser Compatibility

We test all our sites in all modern browsers on Windows, MacOSX and Linux. All pages on this site use structured semantic markup.

 

If your browser or browsing device does not support modern coding techniques, the content of each page is still readable and is presented in a logical order.
