Web Accessibility
* Web Accessibility

Many websites on the internet are inaccessible to visually impaired people. Either designed using bad contrast of colour, or unreadable by screen-reading software, they can often be unintelligible.

All that is needed for a website to be coherently readable by screen-reading software is for the site to follow certain guidelines recommended by the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative). These guidelines are simple to achieve. However, far too many sites do not follow these guidelines, denying access to information and services to millions of people. The RNIB has initiated a Campaign for Good Web Design to highlight this issue and to pressurise organisations and companies to provide equal access to all.

Skill's website adheres to Level 1 of the WAI's guidelines, and we are working towards Level 2.
