- This site has “skip-links” built in to allow users to skip to content, or return to the menu.
- All images are fully titled and ‘alt’ -texted so non-screen users know what they are.
- non-visual CAPTCHA is used on the contact form to (hopefully) weed out the bots from the humans. (recaptcha and “I am not a robot” tick features are not normally accessible)
- All videos are accompanied by a full transcript page including a link to a pdf document that can be downloaded
- Tabindex is removed from focusable elements
- Links are underlined and attention is paid to consistancy
- The theme used is labelled as
