Accessibility Statement - Spanglefish

This website is built on the Spanglefish content management system. It allows normal browser control over zooming by using the Control or Command keys and plus and minus keys and can be navigated using the tab and enter keys.

The site is created in HTML5, the underlying code is valid and uncomplicated and the website should be fully accessible using screen readers.

However, every website content management system can always be improved - if you wish to make any accessibility suggestions about the underlying site structure contact

Spanglefish allows site owners to manage almost all aspects of their site. The text content, the use of images, uploaded documents such as PDFs, background and text colours. They can also manage more complex items which may impact on accessibility like javascript and CSS pseudo-elements, embedded video and audio etc. Any issues with accessibility due to such items are the responsibility of the site owner and should be addressed to them directly.

Accessibility Statement - Plumtree History

Where possible, the Plumtree History website does not have any areas which are inaccessible to people with disabilities. To achieve this:

  • Text is written in as simple a way as possible whilst still conveying the intended meaning.
  • Images have alternative descriptions ('alt=') to allow screen readers to indicate their contents.
  • The text part of each link clearly indicates what will happen when the link is clicked. On any one page the text of each link is unique and consists of mixed-case characters.
  • Where possible, uploaded and linked documents on the site (such as PDFs) have been created in an accessible way, allowing them to be processed by a screen reader, However this may not be practicable for older, archival material.
  • When designing the site, the website administrators have taken care to ensure that effective levels of contrast are used between text and background colours and that alternative explanations are provided for embedded video or audio content.

If you have any comments on the accessibility of the website, or would like to request content in a more accessible form, please contact us.
