We have designed Pentland.com to be as accessible as possible for all users. While we aim to comply with the WCAG guidelines, we recognise that web technology has moved on since their creation, and a number of them are less applicable than at their time of publication. Our overall objective is that users find our site accessible and usable and we have paid attention to the accessibility of the code
The Pentland website is designed to comply with a high level of accessibility and strives to uphold the principles and best practices of the WCAG 1.0 A guidelines (http://www.w3.org/WAI/WCAG1A-Conformance). Our aim is to reach WCAG 1.0 AA compliance as the site matures and appreciate any feedback that you may have with respect to how we can improve accessibility and usability of the site for you. Please use the Contact Us pages to send your feedback.
The site has been built to comply with the W3C’s (x)HTML 1.0 Strict and CSS 2.1 standards. At every stage our code has been checked for accessibility using a range of automated and, more significantly, manual checks. In older browsers (Netscape and Internet Explorer 4 and earlier) it will appear as an unstyled document. All information and functionality will still be accessible.
