We’ve worked very hard to make visiting our website an enjoyable experience. As part of this commitment, we’ve implemented some features to make the site more useable for people with disabilities. This page describes some of those features, and provides some pointers on how to get the best out of this website.
If you have any questions or comments, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re committed to making this website as usable as possible for all our visitors, and welcome any feedback or suggestions.

Our use of “web standards”
We designed and built this website with web standards in mind. In practical terms, this means that:
- It will work consistently in all recent browsers
- Screen readers, and other assistive technology, will be able to read the site content easily and efficiently
- Older browsers, that perhaps can’t display the design quite as we’d intended, will still be able to display the content, which is the most important bit
- If you choose to access the site using a PDA, or a mobile phone, or even some other device that we haven’t even heard of, the content should still display just fine (it just won’t be as pretty as we’d like)
