Accessibility on SheNote Speaker site

This statement covers the pages on the Shenotspeaker.org WordPress site.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

– Access on various devices due to the responsive design

– Read alt text captions for images

– Colour contrast

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible the website is

The theme has some contrast colours that are not highly accessible such as the subheading ‘Scientific Community Resource’. The main text should be accessible but if you cannot access any information on the pages or forms such as the lighter blue email addresses: please contact shenote-speaker@imperial.ac.uk for the information.

What we do about known issues

We work to achieve and maintain WCAG 2.1 AA standards, but it is not always possible for all our content to be accessible. Where content is not accessible, we will state a reason, warn users and offer alternatives.
