Life Works is dedicated to making the information presented on this website accessible to all. We are currently undertaking an independent audit of the site, in line with web content accessibility guidelines (WCAG 2.1), to further enhance the user experience for people with all types, degrees and combinations of disability.
This website has been designed to ensure that it is as easy as possible to read and navigate. However, if you do have difficulty viewing the site, there are some things you can do to improve your browsing experience. For example, within specific browsers, you can adjust your settings to alter the size and colour of fonts, if required. Below, we have detailed how you can change the settings of common web browsers to better suit your needs.
Changing browser settings
For additional help on individual browsers, please access the resources available through the following links:
UK charity, AbilityNet, has produced step-by-step instructions on how to adjust your computer and browser according to your needs, such as for sight or hearing problems. This includes information on how to make the text larger in different browsers, change your keyboard or mouse settings, or increase colour contrast. You can access My Computer My Way resources on the AbilityNet website for more detailed support.
Whilst Life Works will try to maintain support for older browsers wherever feasible, it is not always possible to continue this support. We encourage those using legacy browsers or older systems to upgrade these, where possible, in order to achieve the most optimised and secure browsing experience.
Images and Alt Tags
Where imagery is featured on web pages, ‘Alt’ tags have been used in most cases. These tags provide a description of the image, in the event of:
- The image not loading
- When image options are switched off within browser settings
- Where assistive technology such as a screen reader is being used
Links to additional resources
Where a word or phrase is underlined on a web page, you can click on it to find out more details. Our navigational and on-page links have been written as descriptively as possible to support assistive technology, such as a screen reader, and to support non mouse users with standard keyboard shortcuts.
Links to external websites and downloadable resources, such as PDF documents, will open in a new window, while links to other Life Works web pages will open in the same window.
Some pages on the website contain accompanying PDF documents. You will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your computer to open these files, which can be downloaded from Adobe, free of charge.
