Accessibility

This website is run by the findyourdata.io. We want as many people as possible to be able to use our website, and we have designed it to be accessible.

How you can use this website

On this website, you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels, and fonts
  • zoom in up to 500% with text staying visible on the screen, and most images scaling without resolution loss
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • read most of the website using a screen reader, including the latest versions of JAWS, NVDA, and VoiceOver
  • read most of the website on devices without a screen, like a braille computer
  • use the website, though not the search, even if Javascript is switched off

We’ve made the website text as simple as possible to understand, using plain English wherever possible. Some of our content is technical, and contains scientific terms and language. In some instances we have not been able to simplify the wording without changing the meaning of the text.

How to get information in an accessible format

Issues with technology

The vast majority of our website works correctly on any web technology.

For security reasons, we only support TLS 1.2 and higher security protocols, and this means that some older browsers will not show the site.

How our site looks and work is based on HTML5, and we test for and support the following browsers:

  • Google Chrome (versions in support)
  • Mozilla Firefox (versions in support)
  • Microsoft Edge (versions in support)
  • Apple Safari (versions in support)

We also test in the Lynx browser to ensure that the site renders correctly for non-screen users.

Internet Explorer is no longer supported by Microsoft, and while the site may work in more recent versions of IE, we do not recommend its use.

You may experience unexpected behaviour in other browsers, although we use fully validated code which should work on any other browser.

This site is built using well-structured, semantic markup. Appropriate tags are used to add semantic value to content, ensuring our pages can be read and interpreted by not only web browsers, but also screen readers and other assistive devices.

Our efforts also include, but are not limited to:

  • Maintaining a standard, conventional layout and structure throughout the website.
  • Using the correct and appropriate HTML tags to mark up our pages and content.
  • Using CSS to control styling and presentation of pages.
  • Using JavaScript in an unobtrusive manner, thus separating content from both presentation and behaviour.
  • Checking contrast levels between elements, enhancing legibility of content for those who may be visually impaired.
  • Employing a logical typographical hierarchy for content, enhancing readability.
  • Using table-based markup only for tabular data, and never for layout or presentation.
  • Using an adaptive page layout system, allowing content to be shown in a way which is appropriate to the viewing device.
  • Ensuring link text makes contextual sense, using title and rel attributes as appropriate.
  • Write content in a style which is understandable and easy to follow.

Should there be an instance when our site (Find Your Data) does not meet the needs of a specific user group and it is necessary we make changes to our content, structure or markup then we will endeavour to make the necessary changes to ensure that our site is as accessible as possible.
