This page provides details of what we have done to ensure standards compliance, and also illustrates some of the accessibility features contained within this site.

RVS works towards meeting the Website Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines, published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Changing the font size

You are able to change the size of the font so the text is easier for you to read, the option to do this is on all pages.

Other languages

At the top of every page is a box which allows you to select an alternative display language.

Assistive technology may not  function when the alternative language feature is used.

Image Alt text and accessibility

As standard we only use Alt text where an image conveys essential information for the meaning of the page – for example a diagram about how to do something. Where an image is purely aesthetic we don’t add alt text as this is superfluous information, and extra ‘noise’ that someone using a screenreader will have to get through before reaching the essential information on a page.
