This section of the website will explain how we have tried to make this website accessible to all users and how we plan to increase accessibility in the future.
The Optegra website is built to meet W3C A standards for accessibility. This involves using clear labelling so users know where a link or button is taking them and the type and size of documents they are downloading. We have also used a clear design that takes account of people with visual impairments.
We have attempted to use plain English throughout the site to increase accessibility. The technical documents that healthcare organisations will need to use have been grouped in a specific section, which is aimed at them rather than at the general public.
Other accessibility issues
You can increase the size of the text on our webpages by using the 3 A’s on the top right hand corner of the page. Click on the largest “A” to get the largest font.
We have attempted to use the most suitable colours for people who have limited sight, so it is accessible to as many people as possible
All relevant images have ‘alt’ text descriptions – this is what screen readers will read, and if you hover the cursor over an image, the description will become visible.
Please note that all external links will open up a new browser window. To return to the Optegra website, close the new browser window.
