We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible for all our website visitors, including those with disabilities.
We try to adhere to the most stringent standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium, which is an international group responsible for setting standards for web technologies. The Consortium has set up a specialist task group, the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), to define standards on web accessibility for disabled users.
The WAI produces varying levels of standards and grades them in order of importance. Organisations can use these grades to decide what level of accessibility to aim for. Podfo Ltd. aims to stick to all of the WAI’s standards.
The standards are designed to ensure that all users can access the content on our website, including:
To illustrate how compliancy has made this site accessible, we have listed representative disabilities below and explained how this site meets the users’ needs.
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.
For those that have difficulty using a mouse, keyboard access is supported by using standard shortcut techniques. This site can be fully navigated without the use of a mouse.
The layout of this site is uniform on all pages. The main (horizontal) menu is structured identically on all pages (i.e. any page can be accessed from anywhere in the site). Additionally, section or page navigation is always included in the panel to the top of each page.
There are some animated images on this site which could – in extreme cases – cause difficulty for people who have particular neurological disorders. The use of this has been kept to a minimum.
This website incorporates several features to support blind and partially-sighted people.
All text on this website is specified in percentage terms, meaning that its size can be increased inside the browser window for easier viewing. The ability to support text scaling varies from browser to browser, but given below are some guidelines for the latest versions of Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome and Safari.
Even the same browser product can behave differently on different platforms. For example, Internet Explorer on the Mac will scale images, whereas the Windows version cannot. Check with your supplier for further details.
