This statement applies to the Hailey Parish Council website.
The Parish Council wants as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
• change colours, contrast levels and fonts
• zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
• navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
• navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
• listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How accessible is this website:
This website should be fully accessible save for some documents published prior to September 2018 for which we claim exemption.
Some financial report documents after September 2018 may not be accessible as they were received as scans, jpeg files or already converted to pdfs and converting them is classed as a disproportionate burden.
The editions of the Hailey Herald are in accessible format but not all images and adverts may be classed as accessible.
What to do if you can’t access parts of this website:
If you need information on this website in a different format:
• email email@example.com
• call 07811 174733
We’ll consider your request and get back to you in 14 days.
