How accessible is our website?

Here at Waddesdon Manor we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of and in doing so adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

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.

 Our website should display correctly in the current and previous two versions of the following browsers:
* Firefox
* Chrome
* Internet Explorer
* Safari
* Opera

Javascript is required for optimum display but all content and functionality should be accessible on our site without it.

Areas we're still working on
While this website 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.

The specific areas where we are currently working to achieve better accessibility are:

* Provision of video and audio transcripts
* Provision of audio captions
* Provision of audio descriptions
* Alt text for images doesn't include information on where the user will be taken, just what the image depicts

We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.  In the meantime should you experience any difficulty in accessing please contact us.
