We are committed to making our website accessible to as many people as possible.

The pages are built to conform to WCAG 2.0 AA accessibility standards.

For more information on web accessibility, take a look at the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG), the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) and Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

Some of the measures we have taken to ensure our site is accessible include:

Structural Markup
The web site is built using HTML and CSS (Cascading Styles Sheets). When CSS are not applied to a document (or when using a screen reader), the structure of the site is such that it should still flow and make sense.

Semantic Markup
Semantic markup (HTML) is used to add implicit meaning to pages, by using the correct notation, for the appropriate set of information. For example, heading tags will be used to denote a page headings, paragraph tags for paragraphs and quotes and cite tags for referencing speakers and authors.

Text Sizing
The sites uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers. Where text has been produced using graphics or flash, a non graphic version is also available.

Certain areas of websites can use Javascript to add functionality and provide an enhanced user experience. Where Javascript is disabled or not available, a version of the content is been provided with equivalent functionality.

Alternate text is provided where the graphic contains text, the image has a contextual description of value or some other information can be conveyed.

Links within the pages are written in such a way as they should make sense when taken out of context.

Colour contrast 
The site has been designed in a way that should provide sufficient colour contrast

Whilst the Principality Building Society strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website or on any 3rd party site we may link to.

Principality. Where home matters.
