What are we doing?
To help us make the Friends of the Earth Scotland a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.
The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Friends of the Earth Scotland website.
The website is also designed to work across desktop, tablet and mobile devices and present content that we considered appropriate for the size of each device.
The Website is designed to work in all major desktop and mobile browsers (IE10+, Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Opera)
Technologies and Frameworks we are using:
To help improve the experience for visitors across as many devices as possible we use a few different bits of web technology and frameworks to make this happen.
- Custom front-end framework with jQuery libraries
- Typekit for webfonts
- Nginx on CentOs 6
AbilityNet helps people of any age and with any disability to use technology to achieve their goals, providing guidance about how to:
- change your colours
- make your mobile or tablet easier to use
- make your mouse easier to use
- make text larger
- use your own stylesheet
- magnify the screen
How are we doing?
We’ve worked hard on the Friends of the Earth Scotland website and believe we’ve achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.
