The infirst Healthcare website employs the following design features to ensure the best possible accessibility:
Our website uses simple information architecture with uniform navigation and reliable headings throughout. Content layout and graphical design are consistent on every page.
All of our web pages are scalable. This means that you can change the size of the font by changing the settings in your web browser. To find out how to do this for your web browser, please see the RNIB web page on how to change font sizes.
Our website displays text with good contrast levels to differentiate it from the background in which it is displayed. You can change the default colours of all websites in your browser to suit your tastes. See your browser program help for details.
The site has been successfully tested on a wide range of adaptive technologies and browser/platform combinations to ensure access regardless of the technology used.
We employ table-less layout and design to simplify screen reader navigation by reducing the structural complexity of Web pages.
We have provided printer-friendly functionality in the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to render pages more compatible with printers and to prevent printing unnecessary page elements.
The site includes a 'breadcrumb' directly below the main navigation on each page (except for the homepage), that lets you know where you are and where you have been, or where a particular file resides.
The footer at the bottom of the page, contains navigation links similar to the header. If the page contains a lot of text, users have no need to scroll back to the top of the page to find these links.
