Accessibility Statement

Stanhope Agricultural Society endeavours to make sure that every page within this site complies with the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), as part of its Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI). This site has been built to follow modern guidelines in best practice. 

How This Benefits Disabled Visitors

To illustrate how compliancy has made this site more accessible, we have listed representative disabilities below and explained how this site meets the users' needs.

Visual (Impaired)

Those with visual impairments (e.g. myopia) can scale on all pages on the site to suit their own requirement. All text on pages is scaled, including all menu items.   Where images are used to convey information, text-based alternative descriptions are provided.

Hearing

There is no content on this site that cannot be accessed by the deaf or hard of hearing. If we were to include audio clips we would also provide a text version of the soundtrack.   If we were to include movie clips or video streaming we would also provide time-indexed subtitles.

Speech

This site may be accessed using voice-controlled computer and web browser.

Cognitive

The layout of this site is uniform on all pages. The main  menu is structured identically on all pages (i.e. any page can be accessed from anywhere in the site).

Neurological

There are no animated images or flashing text on this site which could – in extreme cases – cause difficulty for some suffering from particular neurological disorders.

We are committed to providing an accessible service at Stanhope Agricultural Society. If you experience problems or have any suggestions for improvement, please contact us.
