Accessibility

Williamsons is committed to ensuring that our website meets high standards of accessibility. We hope these policies and tips may be of help to our visitors.

This website has been built in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 (WCAG 1.0) established by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). Although the guidelines aim to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities there are wider benefits as they make sites more user-friendly for all.

Web design code is compliant with W3C standards for XHTML and CSS. The site should therefore display correctly in current and any future browsers.

All pages use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS2) for presentation, approved using W3C's validation service.

All pages are checked for adherence to Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) guidelines.
