The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA. nhsrho.org is partially conformant with WCAG 2.1 level AA. Partially conformant means that some parts of the content do not fully conform to the accessibility standard.
Accessibility of nhsrho.org relies on the following technologies to work with the particular combination of web browser and any assistive technologies or plugins installed on your computer:
- Embedded content from third party suppliers
- Adobe PDF
These technologies are relied upon for conformance with the accessibility standards used.
Alternative text for images
All images (other than purely decorative images) have associated text that describes the content of the image. If you are using screen reading software, it should read the ‘alt text’ to you.
