Maintaining an accessible site is an ongoing process and nidirect is continually working to offer an accessible and user friendly experience.
nidirect is designed to work well for everyone regardless of the device used to access the site.
nidirect works with various assistive technologies by:
- using good colour contrast
- using larger fonts
- using a simple, uncluttered page layout
- allowing navigation using a keyboard only
- conforming with accessibility standards and usability best practices
nidirect endeavours to conform to the Worldwide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) at level AA.
Note, some sections of this website are controlled by third parties and so it has not been possible for the same standards of accessibility to be applied to them.
