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