Accessibility statement

Accessibility statement for Cornwall Outdoors web pages

The content of this website is administered and edited by Cornwall Outdoors staff and supported by Cornwall Council. As a public sector body we are required to make the content of these pages as accessible to as wide a audience as possible. This means that we make consideration for those with:

  • impaired vision
  • motor difficulties
  • cognitive impairments or learning disabilities
  • deafness or impaired hearing

This can be achieved through the ability to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

There are a range of browser plugins and software solutions available that can help make most websites more accessible. AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How accessible this website is

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible;

  • you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text through interaction with the web page style sheets,
  • most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software,
  • some downloadable documents are only available as PDF documents,
  • the moving images on the homepage cannot be paused, or controlled with a keyboard.

Action to review areas of non-compliance

Most of the non-compliance issues are not manageable through the content management software supplied and used for this domain. It is the intention of Cornwall Outdoors to commission a web page in the next financial year that will address these issues. Some accessibility functionality will not be fully available until this happens.  In the meantime, we are working to make our website as accessible as possible through;

  • Reviewing each pages for ease of readability
  • Checking images have accurate alternative text
  • Providing a word document version of every PDF document

Reporting accessibility problems with this website

We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or believe that we are not meeting accessibility requirements within our reach, please contact: paul.seymour@cornwall.gov.uk
