What exactly is an accessible website, anyway?
An accessible website is one that can easily be used by almost anyone. That includes people who have disabilities or limitations that require the use of screen readers, different colour schemes, larger text, or access keys. It also refers to people who may be using slow internet connections, older computers, mobile devices and older browsers. Our full accessibility policy explains this.
All Fat Beehive websites are designed to be clean and easy to navigate, meeting and exceeding today’s accessibility standards. Fat Beehive sites are built in valid XHTML with CSS, and meet at least WCAG level AA standards and higher where possible. Our accessibility package also includes a full, printable site map.
By using web standards set by the World Wide Web Consortium, we ensure the greatest range of compatibility with not only web browsers on computers but also on other devices, such as screen readers and mobile devices. Any well-built website should look exactly the same, no matter which web browser you use, and anyone, regardless of ability, should be able to use it.
