Talbot Rice Gallery is 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 our website 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) recommended version of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG). 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 the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards for Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.
The site has been built to endeavour to ensure the following accessibility:
Page titles are shown in window title bar in browsers, in browsers' tabs when there are multiple web pages open, in search engine results, used for browser bookmarks/favourites, read by screen reader
Text alternatives ("alt text") convey the purpose of an image on the website.
The headings are marked up for easy navigation
Web pages will work when people change the colours to ensure sufficient luminance contrast.
If text size needs to be increased, users should not have to scroll horizontally to be able to read the full text.
Keyboard focus should be visible and should follow a logical order through the page elements.
Users should be able to control moving content.
Multimedia content should be able to be controlled by keyboard. Video and audio should not start automatically when a web page opens. The Gallery will endeavour to provide captions and a transcript for any video content as well as a transcript for audio content.
When linearised, the website should follow a one column format on screen.
Whilst Talbot Rice Gallery 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.
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 the Talbot Rice Gallery website, please do not hesitate to contact us.
