Accessibility Statement

Disability News Service wants to make this website as accessible as possible. We hope eventually that we will approach best practice, and we believe we have made a good start on that process, for example by minimizing the use of graphics and photos, and providing descriptions of those images we do use.

Those who want to increase the text size can use the tool to the right on this page, which has a wide range of increments, and – once set – carries the settings to other pages, as well as remembering the settings for future visits.

But this is a new project and there will certainly be areas for improvement we haven’t spotted, or don’t yet have the budget to add.

If you have any concerns about the accessibility of the Disability News Service website, do please email the editor at john@disabilitynewsservice or call 020 8446 5900 or 07776 206595.

There are also lots of ways that you can make browsing this and other sites more accessible on the BBC’s excellent My Web My Way pages (developed with the disability charity AbilityNet).
