Accessibility Statement

The Hearing Care Centre aims to make this website accessible to all visitors, ensuring it meets the needs of users with disabilities, and is viewable in the widest possible range of web-browsing technology. To achieve this goal, the The Hearing Care Centre website was created in accordance with certain web standards and government guidelines.

Standards compliance

  1. All pages on this site comply with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0). As many of the guidelines can not be tested automatically, this statement is made on the basis of subjective manual review. After evaluating the site against the priority 1 and 2 guidelines, it is believed that all pages adhere to them. A checklist of the WCAG guidelines is available here.

  2. All pages on this site comply with the Bobby AA accessibility guidelines. Understanding that many accessibility features can be measured, but many can not, this statement is made on the basis of both an automatic scan and subjective manual review. After evaluating the site against Bobby's AA guidelines, it is believed that all pages adhere to them.

  3. All pages on this site validate as HTML 4.01 Transitional, as determined by the W3C Markup Validation Service. This is important to ensure that the website has a consistant appearance and functionality across all modern web browsers.

  4. All pages on this site use valid Cascading Stylesheets (CSS), as determined by the W3C CSS Validation Service. This is important to ensure that the website has a consistant appearance across all modern web browsers.
