Accessibility statement for A&B Cymru
This accessibility statement applies to the A&B Cymru website: https://aandb.cymru
This website is run by A&B Cymru. 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, without compromising the technical and sensitive nature of certain topics.
We’re continually working on improving accessibility on the website and acknowledge that there is always something that can be improved. Please get in touch and let us know if you have any feedback to share with us.
