Spectrum Property Care is aware that many of our customers have varying needs or a disability which may affect how they may view and access the web.
We are committed to ensuring that all of our content and facilities can be used by all our customers. The following highlights some of the initiatives designed to make the Web site interface and content more usable and accessible.
EASIER TO VIEW
- Text can be resized to be larger or smaller in all web browsers.
- We have tried to use colours throughout the Web site that provide maximum contrast between foreground and background items.
- All graphics and images throughout the web site have been assigned an Alt-text attribute, which describes the contents or function of the item.
- Speech enabled: the website works with the majority of screen readers.
EASIER TO NAVIGATE
The overall web site has been designed to provide users with a seamless view and user experience of the company.
The framework and interface has been designed to provide a consistent structure throughout the web site, so users will know exactly where to find navigation, content and important functionality and information.
EASIER TO USE
- The navigation structure is designed with ease of use in mind, featuring a high level top navigation and additional information relevant to your current section on the left.
- Where downloads are used they are provided in Adobe PDF format which is a popular accessible document reading software. Other formats such as Microsoft Word are also provided where possible.
- A translated page is visible in the top right corner of all pages for non English speakers.
- Links are descriptive where possible to aid the browsing of the website.
This site has been designed using responsive design, meaning the display will adapt to all common screen sizes.
The Spectrum Property Care's web site has been designed to comply with the guidelines issued by World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Their Website Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) define three levels of accessibility, each progressively more demanding. The most basic level of accessibility is Priority 1 (level A compliance) followed by Priority 2 and 3 (levels AA and AAA).
This site complies with all Priority 1 (A) guidelines of the W3C Website Accessibility Guidelines. Many pages within this site exceed Level A by satisfying the majority of Level AA and AAA compliance requirements.
Accessibility and Translation software
Our website has accessibility and translation software available from the listen and translate link at the top of each page . If you click on this link a Recite Me toolbar will appear which allows you to have the website content spoken to you, as well as being able to change the font size, font and background colours, plus translating the website to another language.
