Accessibility

This site has been designed with accessibility in mind taking in to consideration various web standards and government guidelines.

Access keys

Pembrokeshire Town and Community Council's website supports access keys.

Access keys are designed to help users who may have difficulty in using pointing devices. The following are available on this site:

H - Home Page
S - Site map
A - Accessibility (this page)

A comprehensive list of different browsers and access key shortcuts can be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Access_key

Text size and zoom

For people who find the information difficult to read, it is possible to change the size of the text on most web browsers. On current browsers it is also possible to zoom the whole page, increasing the size but leaving the formatting in tact. A comprehensive list of different browsers and page zooming functionality can be found on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Page_zooming#Web_browsers

Alternative text for images

For every image that is used on the page we also give an alternative text description of the image. This is helpful when using screen readers such as Jaws and for people who have chosen not to display images in their browsers.

For more advice on screen readers and talking browsers the BBC has some advice on different options - BBC Accessibility

PDFs

A PDF is a type of electronic document and has been used by many organisations and governments internationally. The main advantage of this format is that it can be displayed and printed on many platforms, by using a free viewing program which can be downloaded at the Adobe Web Site (opens new window). The information contained in PDF documents also remains un-editable, protecting the integrity of the document. To view a PDF you need to download and install Adobe Acrobat Reader which is free program available from the Adobe Web Site (opens new window).
