Accessibility statement

This accessbility statement applies to the Guildford Park Road consultation website.

This website is run by Four Communications Limited in partnership with Guildford Borough Council.  We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Compliance status

This website has been designed to meet the WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standard. However as we have not formally audited the site it should be considered to be non-compliant until a full audit has been carried out.

We have tested it using automated tools such as WAVE and carried out a basic internal test against these standards.  We are currently assessing whether a formal accessibility audit is required to establish compliance given the size and temporary nature of the website.
