Many Internet users with disabilities find web sites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. We are working hard at Green & Black's to provide access to information that is available to all our customers, and this goes for the website, too.
We are aware of the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities and have been redesigning this website with the aim of ensuring compatibility with as many of these systems as possible. Changes include keeping text clear, formatting layouts and tables, and making sure links adequately describe where they go ('click here' does not mean much in isolation).
We have rebuilt this website to meet the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) Content Accessibility Guidelines set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and we have tried, wherever possible, to ensure we conform to 'Double-A' standards. You can find out more about the initiative on W3C's website. If you come across a part of our site that is difficult to use please tell us about it. We intend to keep improving our accessibility – so to help us do it, send us your comments.
The Green & Black's website incorporates ACCESSKEY functionality. These keys can be used to navigate the site quickly and easily. Simply hold down "Alt", then press the corresponding number, release and then press return. The ACCESSKEY functionality used on this site is as follows:
- "Alt+0" = Link to Accessibility Statement
- "Alt+1" = Link to Home Page
- "Alt+2" = Skip Navigation
- "Alt+3" = Link to Site Map
- "Alt+8" = Link to Terms and Conditions
- "Alt+9" = Link to Contact Us
The web size has been designed to allow you to resize the page text if you want to. To do this, go to the top of the page, and on the right, you will see three "A"s. The larger you want to make the page text, select a larger "A".
