Accessibility

Standards

We have designed our website to be as accessible as possible so that you can find out about our courses and what we do. In doing so, we have taken into consideration our legal obligations under section 21 of the Disability Discrimination Act - "to make reasonable adjustments to ensure blind and partially sighted people can access your service".
In addition, we have accorded with the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB) guidelines.

We also try to meet the standards promoted by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI), including all of the WAI Priority One checkpoints.

 

We want to improve our website to make it as accessible and helpful as possible. If there is information that is not currently available on our website and would be of benefit to you, let us know by emailing marketing@racc.ac.uk

 

Help using the RACC website

The website has symbols that will adjust the size of the text when clicked.

 

Near the top right corner of every page of the RACC website, there is text that says ‘Text Size:’ followed by the letter ‘A’. If you click on the first 'A' the text will show the default size, the next 'A' will make the text slightly larger, and the third 'A' make it a lot larger still.

 

The text can also be adjusted using Internet Explorer by doing the following:
1. Click on View (at top left of window)
2. Move to Text Size
3. Click on ‘Larger’ or ‘Largest’

 

Screen Readers

The College website is enabled with a screen reading software called BrowseAloud.
BrowseAloud reads web pages aloud for people who find it difficult to read online. Reading large amounts of text on screen can be difficult for those with literacy and visual impairments.


BrowseAloud makes using the Internet easier for people who have:

  • Low literacy and reading skills
  • English as a second language
  • Dyslexia
  • Mild visual impairments
