Accessibility guidelines

North Devon Council is committed to making its website as accessible as possible to everyone, including those with disabilities and those who use assistive technologies to browse the web. We have included a number of features to improve accessibility.
  • the site uses standards-compliant valid hypertext markup language (HTML) enabling cross-browser and cross-platform compatibility
  • we use cascading style sheets (CSS) for layout and styles, allowing users to change the text size to suit their needs
  • we provide a text only version - synchronised with the graphics version - for those who prefer this
  • our images include 'alt' text which provides a textual equivalent to describe the image to those who are unable to access it
  • our site does not use tables for layout which should be beneficial to those who use screen readers
Dixerit Plus
Make text larger
  • each page has a button that allows users to enlarge text on the page

We use Adobe(R) Acrobat(R) software to create PDF (portable document format) files. PDF documents may not be readily accessible to screen readers and may not be formatted for visually impaired users.

We do tag PDF documents so that these are accessible. However, the website contains many hundreds of legacy PDF documents that are not tagged.

There are a range of tolls available to convert PDF documents into plain text or plain HTML documents. Links to these tools are available on our help page.
