Accessibility

We have made every effort to make the Armed Forces Day website accessible and easy to use for everyone.

Our aspiration is to conform to the Guidelines for UK government websites and the Worldwide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0, Level AA, and to ensure that this Web accessibility standard is achieved and maintained. This includes:

  • Page structure is conveyed using header elements.
  • A stylesheet is used on our website and relative font sizes on all text with the exception of graphical text.
  • Text can be increased or decreased in size by using the "view" option in your browser.
  • Images that convey important information have alternative text. Where an image is used for a decorative purpose the alternative text will be left blank.
  • No information is exclusively conveyed using colour.
  • A sitemap is available to provide information about the layout of the website.
