Web Accessibility Initiative
This website endeavours to conform to Level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.
These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers should also display it correctly.
Whilst W2 Global Data Solutions 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.
We are reliant on non-HTML-based web content, particularly PDF files. More information about the accessibility support within PDF documents is available at http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/
Should you experience any difficulty in accessing the W2 Global Data Solutions website, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
All web pages will be assessed by the guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), available at www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/.
W2 Global Data Solutions requires that all new web pages should be written to at least AA standard.
Any third party who is engaged to design and build web pages or web system interfaces for W2 Global Data Solutions, whether hosted within or without the *.w2globaldata.com domain, will be required to comply with these guidelines. Sites will be checked periodically.
New content will be either written or edited by a trained editor to ensure it is written as clearly as possible. Legacy content will be re-edited where necessary as it is revised.
Accessibility features of this website
The page layout and colour scheme are implemented using cascading style sheets (CSS) and can be over-ridden by the user. All text can be enlarged or reduced to suit your preferences.
The source code is structured with an accessibility banner as the first element of the page, containing links to the main navigation and content.
All pages start with a heading 1 element. Sub-headings are used to further divide the page.
Tables are only used for tabular data (that is, they are not used for layout purposes). We avoid using complex tables (that is, tables with two or more logical levels of headings).
We do not use frames.
We do not use access keys. Research suggests that these can sometimes conflict with shortcut keys used by assistive technologies.
All pages validate to an official W3C Document Type Definition. Pages are checked for compliance as part of the publishing process.
