West Dunbartonshire Council aims to meet the highest standards of accessibility.

Changing colours, font, text size and other settings

All modern browsers allow you to change colours and font sizes. We've tried to create a site which doesn't get in the way when you change these settings

For advice on changing settings, check out the BBC's accessibility pages.

You can choose your operating system (e.g Windows), your Browser (e.g Internet Explorer) and the problem you're trying to fix. You'll then get lots of relevant advice on accessibility settings.

What we've done

Plain English

We try to write in plain English and avoid jargon. If you don't understand something, please let us know

Heading structures

The site uses simple heading structures which should make it easier to navigate, especially for people who use screen readers.

Web standards

We try our best to comply with code standards (e.g CSS and HTML) and W3C WAI guidelines.

In order to achieve this we are not only aiming to make our website meet the accessibility standards laid down by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), but also the various coding standards that exist, to allow the site to be seen by as many client readers as possible (e.g. different browsers, mobile phones, screen readers etc...).

Standards used in development of this website:

  • Level "A" accessibility guidelines (All pages)
  • Level "AAA" accessibility guidelines (As many pages as possible)
  • XHTML 1.0 Transitional (All pages)
  • CSS 2.0 (All pages)
