Accessibility

In keeping with our policy of customers first, and our obligations under the DDA (Disability Discrimination Act), we are striving to adhere to accessibility guidelines.

Making our website accessible is a core aim of Low Carbon Essentials and we will try and ensure that it is usable with a broad range of operating systems, browsers, and specialist assistive technologies.

As a standard, we employ all the following methods to ensure our site is accessible to as many people as possible:

  • Maintaining a standard layout and navigation structure throughout
  • Using headings, paragraphs, lists and other HTML (HyperText Markup Language) to create a logical document structure
  • Allowing visitors to resize all text using their browser settings.
    To do this on Internet Explorer: View > Text size
    To do this on Firefox: View > Text size
    To do this on Opera: File > Preferences > Fonts > Minimum font size (pixels)
    You can also resize the text by scrolling with the wheel of your mouse whilst holding down the control key or pressing”Ctrl” and “+” or “-”
  • Using plain backgrounds to improve the readability of all text
  • Using foreground and background colour combinations which have sufficient contrast and are not known to cause problems to those with visual impairments
  • All pictures have an alternative text description
  • Designing layouts to work satisfactorily over a range of screen resolutions
  • Ensuring all hyperlinks use descriptive and meaningful text
  • Avoiding short-hand language such as ‘Click here’
  • Using plain English in all our written content
  • Using a written style that is straightforward and understandable
