Malcolm Hollis seeks to provide accessible content to as many people as possible, regardless of ability, in accordance with the current Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).
Although many accessibility features are incorporated into the Malcolm Hollis website and many of our pages validate to HTML 4.01 transitional, we are aware that at present we are not Conformance level A compliant.
We take our responsibilities seriously and although no date is set for completion of work, we aim to provide accessible content on our website as soon as practicable. We are currently making improvements to meet all of priority 1 checkpoints of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. Meanwhile, if you have any difficulties accessing any content on this website, please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are also aware that at present, our templates do make use of certain HTML deprecated features such as using tables to display layout, headings and other HTML elements that could be marked in a more descriptive manner. Part of the work we are undertaking will include using structured semantic mark-up to improve this. However, users can switch off Cascading Style Sheets and colours if this facilitates their browser experience by changing the settings on their browser. Most images representing content do contain text alternatives and a sitemap is provided to help the user find their way through the site.
