Accessibility statement


This accessibility statement applies to developed by Cardiff Met Students' Union.

This website has been created with accessibility issues in mind to allow all users regardless of technology or ability to access the information they need and be fully accessible to everyone. Continual reassessment and improvement reviews are undertaken on this website to maintain accessibility using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA. 





Some areas of our site have slightly different format and content; Where this applies we are working to develop specific guidance that will be included on those pages. 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
·        Website text as simple as possible to understand.



How accessible is this website?


We have purchased the Recite ME Accessibility Tool (top right of the website on the grey navigation bar 'Accessibility Tools'), which allows the website users to customise the website in ways which work best for them. Providing tools such as, a screen reader, translation tools, reading support and the ability to make styling changes. We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible, however we are currently working through these issues.

Also, Abilitynet's MyComputerMyWay service provides advice and information on how to adapt your device to your personal preferences.
