This is the official accessibility statement for the Disability Action In Islington website.
This website has been built with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. This has been achieved by adhering to best practices, such as compliance with W3C standards.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact the web team at DAII by emailing email@example.com
This accessibility statement records the main steps that we have taken to accommodate the needs of disabled people:
The pages on this site have been tested using Bobby software, and comply with the guidelines on which Bobby is based. Where test results from Bobby have indicated either a warning or a failure to comply with standards these issues have been addressed, and decisions made individually to justify the best approach to compliance.
All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional.
All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2, H3 and H4 tags for subtitles.
JAWS users can skip to the next section within pages on this website by pressing ALTINSERT3.
Some browsers support jumping to specific links by typing keys defined on the web site. On Windows, you can press the 'alt' key and the access key, followed by the 'enter' key; on Macintosh, you can press the 'ctrl' key and the access key.
Please note: access keys are only supported in Microsoft Internet Explorer 4 and above and Netscape 6.x versions and above.

Selectable page styles
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
Every page on the DAII website has a control at the top that allows you to select your preferred visual style for the pages on the website.
You need to have cookies turned on for this feature to work. When you have made your selection of the style that you prefer the DAII website will remember your preference throughout your session. If you go away from the website and come back another day then you will need to state your preference for page style again, and we have done this to protect your privacy.
There are four alternative styles to choose from:
- This is the visual style of the website when you first arrive.
- Pages are laid out in two columns, with the main content on the left, and other helpful related content on the right.
- Most visitors will probably find this to be the best way of viewing the website, but some people who have visual disabilities might find that they do not notice the content on the right hand side of pages.
- The text is bigger so that people who have visual disabilities should find it easier to read.
- The content is laid out in a single column so you read the content from top to bottom.
- This style has a light blue background so people with Dyslexia should find it easier to read.
- This style is similar to the Text Zoom style but has a dark background with light coloured writing.
- Some people with visual disabilities might find it easier to read the pages of the website using this style.
Turn styles off
- This unstyled view of the website can be helpful for people who use Internet browsers that do not support Cascading Style Sheets.
All pages contain a link to the home page, and the menu system has been constructed in a consistent fashion throughout the website. The additional breadcrumb navigation system is designed to reinforce awareness of the location of the page that is being viewed within the website, and to increase overall access to all of the information that is available.
Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail. Links are written to make sense out of context.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes. Complex images include inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.
This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified text size option in visual browsers.
The most common visual browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer and we have provided the following description of how to change your font size display in MSIE version 6:
- Select View from the top pull down menu options.
- Select Font Size from the View menu options.
- Select the font size that you prefer from the list of five available options.
Many website visitors with impaired vision need to increase the font size from the default Medium setting to Larger or Largest.
You should be aware that although DAII website has been built to accommodate changed font sizes, that this is not the case with all websites.
Some visually impaired web users need to take further steps to make websites visible. Internet Explorer and many other browsers enable you to specify your own Cascading Style Sheet that will override the styling of the websites that you view. This will give you full control of the visual appearance of the text in websites. You can find out more about specifying your own CSS file by using the Help function within your web browser software.
