Accessibility

We are working to make this site as accessible and easy to use as possible. This means we took accessibility into account when we built and tested the site, and we will continue to test it as its content and the technologies used to access it change. Our testing took place on a range of desktop and mobile platforms and using built-in and third party assistive technology products.

Alt-text is provided for all images which are essential to convey essential information to understand the meaning of the current webpage, such as diagrams about how to do something. When an image is decorative, no alt-text is provided to not have superfluous information which would delay screen reader users from reaching the essential information in the page. 

If you have any problems using the site, especially if you used assistive technology, please contact website@guidedogs.org.uk. When reporting problems, you may find it useful to read Contacting Organisations about Accessible Websites

Our main basis for accessibility testing is the WCAG 2.0 guidelines, but because these are now quite old, we've tried to adhere to the principles underpinning them rather than explicitly meeting the individual criteria.
