Wyre Council is continually striving to make its website more inclusive and to provide access to all visitors regardless of technological or physical disability.
Our website has been designed in accordance with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) internationally recognised Web Accessibility Initiative guidelines.
The WAI is a set of guidelines for producing usable and accessible websites and detailed information can be found on the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) website.
There are three levels of web accessibility under the initiative - "A", "AA" and "AAA". It is intended that all pages on Wyre's website will conform to at least a priority 2 "AA" rating.
ReadabilityWe have made every effort to ensure this web site is easily readable using 'plain english'. In addition, we have ensured that the design of this web site is not an obstacle to its usability and readability.
To aid in the navigation of our website, we have enabled several access keys (short cut keys) to some of the most useful pages, We have also included links for some of the site's added functionality such as the Skip to Content link.
The majority of web browsers support access key functionality. To use access keys you need to do the following:
- For Windows users, press "ALT" plus the listed access key
- For Macintosh users, press "Control" plus the listed access key
- Pressing "Enter" will then take you to the page
