What is an accessible website?
An accessible site is one that accommodates the full range of users. Designing for accessibility therefore means accepting that, for online information, there is:
• No standard information user, and,
• No standard device for browsing information
An accessible website does not exclude anybody due to:
• Their abilities, or
• The method they choose to access the web
Accessible websites prioritise clear content, structure and ease of navigation over frilly aspects of design, however they also need not be visually unattractive, nor are they prevented from using the latest web technologies, provided that all information is still accessible to users.
North Norfolk District Council aims to be compliant with the "must do" standards of accessibility. Where any non compliance occurs in automated compliance testers we aim to ensure that this is addressed or does not directly affect the accessibility of the website. We welcome any feedback visitors using the website may have on this subject.
