Accessibility

CHIP's website has been designed and developed with the needs of people with sight loss and disability in mind.  We have also taken on board international guidance and best practice on web accessibility. 

CHIP are committed to making information available on our website available to everyone regardless of web browsers used or physical characteristics of users.

Web accessibility conformance statement

CHIP works towards meeting standard guidelines for web accessibility. Our checkpoints are taken from the technical standard Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.

Image Alt text and accessibility

As standard we only use Alt text where an image conveys information necessary for the meaning of the page - for example a diagram about how to do something. Where an image is purely decorative we don't use alt text as this is superfluous information, and extra 'noise' that someone using a screenreader will have to get through before reaching the essential information on a page. Any images which don't have alt text have an empty alt tag which is indicated using "".
