Accessibility

The CCG aims to ensure its website is easy to use and understand. We are aiming to comply with the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C's) Level AA guidelines for accessibility and are committed to maintaining and improving the accessibility of our site.

How you can use this website  

  • change colours, contrast levels, and fonts (please scroll down for help on how to do this)
  • zoom in up to 300% with text staying visible on the screen
  • navigate most of the website using a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software called Readspeaker
  • read most of the website using a screen reader, including the latest versions of JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver

Areas of the website currently being improved to make it more accessible and we know there are some parts of the website which are not fully accessible:

  • document titles are being renamed to make theme more readable 
  • link text does not always make sense, and might say click here, but these are being improved and changed
  • navigation within pages might not follow the right order and these are being improved
  • we have a lot of old PDF documents which have not been designed for accessibility
  • zoom in up to 300% with images staying visible on the screen, and most images scaling without resolution loss
  • checking the website can be used even if Javascript is switched off and if most of the website can be read on devices without a screen, like a braille computer

The issues above are being looked at and resolved and we aim to have these fixed by September 2020. 

Readspeaker

This website features Readspeaker. Readspeaker adds speech, reading and translation support tools to online content to extend the reach of websites for people that require reading support. For more information on BrowseAloud and its features look at their website.

Search

The search facility of this website provides an alternative route to finding information. This searches all live content.

PDFs

We have a lot of PDFs on our site, in particular historical board papers for our Governing Body and Primary Care Commissioning Committee. As these are historical board papers which are not changed or updated we need not intend to make accessible versions of these as this would be a disproportionate burden. We will continue to upload PDFs for items intended to be printed such as posters and for corporate documents such as our annual report.

Breadcrumb trail

You will find links to each of the parent pages of the webpage you are looking at in the green in the green area near the top of each page on this website. This is known as the breadcrumb trail. The breadcrumb trail is designed to help users with navigation. You can use this to help find your way on the CCG site.
