ILF Website Achieves W3C Conformance

The ILF is pleased to announce that its website has been validated as conforming with the W3C accessibility guidelines.  The relevant W3C logos now appear on the home page.  It is an indicator that web accessibility standards have been achieved and maintained.

W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) is the main international standards organisation for the internet.  The W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 explain how to make web content accessible to the largest possible audience, with an emphasis on disabled people.

The guidelines encourage web developers to ensure content is clear and understandable, that it is consistent throughout the site, easy to navigate between, and that it can be accessed, viewed and understood by all computer users with the equipment they have available and according to their own preferences - even if they are using older browser systems, speech readers, or do not have use of a mouse.

The Triple A standard means that all the priority checkpoints in the guidance have been considered.

ILF Business Development Director, James Sanderson says, "Creating an ILF website that people find accessible and easy to use is a key priority for us as an organisation, and one we will continue to work on.  More and more of our users are also computer users, and the website may be their main way of getting information from us.  We want people to have a positive experience when they use the site, so that hopefully they will come back again.  Cabinet Office guidance for websites supports the W3C accessibility guidelines and we are pleased to have achieved this standard."
