We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
We are continually seeking out solutions that will help us improve the overall accessibility of the website. In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing the Sutton Uplift website, please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Accessibility Standards on the website
The Sutton Uplift website uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to style information and images, all of which can be overridden by the user.
The Sutton Uplift website does not use frames on any of the website pages. Links to external websites may lead to you a website that does contain frames, however.
We do not use access keys on this website, as research indicates they may interfere with accessibility programs running on computers.
Whilst Sutton Uplift strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability. It is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website, because of our reliance to third-party vendors for some web systems such as online maps, some parts of the website do not meet the accessibility criteria.
We are also reliant on non-HTML-based web content, particularly PDF files. More information about the accessibility support within PDF documents is available at www.adobe.com/accessibility.html
Most computers can open PDF files automatically but if you have any problems you can download the free Adobe Reader software from the Adobe website.
