Accessibility & Pentland

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.
