Edlington Town Council Web-site - Accessibility Statement

Introduction

This accessibility statement applies to the web-site of Edlington Town Council at www.edlingtontowncouncil.gov.uk

This web-site is run by Edlington Town Council via UK Local Council's technology, supported by 2Commune Ltd. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this web-site. For example, this means that 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.
