At CEIS, we are dedicated to ensuring that our website is accessible to all individuals, regardless of their abilities or disabilities. We believe in providing an inclusive online experience that allows everyone to access and interact with our content easily. This accessibility statement outlines our commitment to making our website as accessible as possible, in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 and relevant accessibility standards.
Standards and Guidelines
We strive to adhere to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 as the benchmark for web accessibility. These guidelines provide a set of internationally recognised principles and success criteria for creating accessible websites. Our aim is to meet Level AA standards to ensure a high level of accessibility for all users.
Accessibility Features and Accommodations
To enhance accessibility on our website, we have implemented the following features and accommodations:
We provide descriptive alternative text for images on our website, enabling users who rely on screen readers or have images disabled to understand the content.
Our website can be navigated using only a keyboard, allowing individuals who cannot use a mouse or have limited dexterity to access all areas and features.
Adjustable Text Sizes:
Users can modify the font sizes on our website to suit their preferences, ensuring that content remains readable for individuals with visual impairments.
Captions and Transcripts:
Wherever possible, we provide captions for audio and video content, as well as transcripts for podcasts or other non-text media, enabling users who are deaf or hard of hearing to access the information.
We strive to maintain a sufficient colour contrast between text and background elements to ensure readability for individuals with visual impairments.

We regularly evaluate the accessibility of our website to identify and address any accessibility issues. This includes both manual testing and automated accessibility testing using industry-standard tools. We also value feedback from our users, especially those with disabilities, to improve the accessibility of our website continuously.
