Access for all
We’re working to make sure everyone can use the PAVS website.
This accessibility statement applies to the PAVS website pavs.org.uk.
PAVS works hard to ensure that its website is accessible to a wide audience. We listen and respond to feedback and follow established standards for design and accessibility.
We’re helping our website visitors by:
Making sure the PAVS website meets the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA standard.
The PAVS website has been built so that as many PAVS visitors as possible can use it. You should be able to:
We know that some people have trouble with reading text on certain colours. You may be able to use your own colours with your browser.
The PAVS website uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets, the content of each page is designed to be still readable.
Supported Browsers and Mobile Devices
We’ve made the PAVS website text as simple as possible to understand. Please note that this website may not function correctly if you are using an older browser e.g. Internet Explorer. So it’s recommended that you use newer browsers like Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge.
If you need extra help in using computers, the web and assistive technology, we recommend you visit the site BBC My Web My Way. This site has videos and information to help you use the accessibility features of your computer and how to make it easier to use the web.
