We’re constantly working to make the ALLIANCE website as accessible and usable as possible.

The website doesn’t have a separate accessibility statement. This is because we’ve tried to design the ALLIANCE website to be as accessible and usable as possible for every user.

What we’ve been doing

Before the build we held a series of focus groups, all information was documented at the time – from that we designed a website. We held a general focus group and two specific focus groups with a range of users with different accessibility needs.

Before the site went live it was sent for a formal accessibility evaluation to SITE Scotland. The website has also been re-evaluated since going live.

To make sure the website remains accessible we will re-evaluate the site on a regular basis.

If you would like a copy of the Accessibility Evaluation and reports from our focus groups please contact us.

Compatibility with tools

The ALLIANCE should be compatible with recent versions of the following screen readers:

  • Jaws
  • ZoomText
  • NVDA
  • VoiceOver
  • Window Eyes
  • Supernova screen readers
  • MAGic

The site should also be compatible with:

  • basic operating system screen magnifiers
  • speech recognition software, such as Dragon Naturally Speaking
  • operating system speech packages
