Accessibility

Kent House's support for web accessibility.

Web accessibility refers to the possibility for everyone to reach products and services on the Internet within a reasonable timeframe and without being impeded by visual, motor, auditory, seizure, cognitive/intellectual, as well as social and economic barriers.

Kent House creates services that are accessible to people of all ages and all abilities, comply with the latest accessibility standards and make it easy for every single person to reach the content and functionality available.

Accessibility policy

The Web promises an idea of universal access - a place where everyone is truly equal. However, in order for this to happen, it is necessary to think carefully about what accessibility really means.

Accessibility is a partnership between website creators like Kent House, the producers of operating systems and browsers, and specialist assistive technologies which many disabled users employ to allow them, for example, to view websites in easier-to-read colours, with larger fonts, or as spoken text.

As such technologies have become more available and sophisticated, Kent House always ensures that:

  • the design, code and media content on our websites works well with assistive technologies to ensure an accessible experience for impaired users
  • a point of help in the form of the accessibility page is provided in order to put users in contact with our accessibility adviser, so that they can find out how to customise their computers and which assistive technologies to use to get the most accessible web experience for all websites.

For more information please contact our accessibility adviser at: accessibility@kenthouse.com

Accessibility standards

Kent House ensures that our website, as well as the websites of our clients always comply with a growing body of accessibility standards, such as Disability Discrimination Acts and W3C's Web Accessibility Initiative, across design and coding.
