In addition, you should be able to make adjustments as needed, for example:
We don’t use features such as flyout navigation menus and ensure the website loads quickly and cleanly to avoid links suddenly moving as other content loads. These create problems for people with motor difficulties and can be irritating for many others.
Some parts of this website are not fully accessible. If you have difficulties accessing our website or have recommendations to improve access, we would like to hear from you.
Technically, we aim to meet the top Level AAA Conformance for website accessibility outlined in the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). Developed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), this is an international standard.
Typically, Level AA Conformance is used as a basis for complying with UK web accessibility regulations. To test access, we use tools provided by WebAim, accessibility experts. Read our WebAim WAVE report.
Finance and network connections can also present barriers to access. While Scotland has good broadband and wireless connections, there are still rural areas without broadband connections and times when wireless reception is patchy. We reduce file sizes and optimise images so the website uses less bandwidth and loads quickly on any device.
Small file sizes and optimised code reduce the cost of visiting our website for those without unlimited data. It’s also greener, as it takes less energy to share and process smaller files.
We benchmark using Google Page Speed Insights to measure access speeds. This measures how long it takes for a website to be ready and usable after a user clicks a link.
