The National Assembly for Wales have made every effort to ensure this site is accessible to all.
We have aimed to make this site adhere to the following guidelines:
- CSS 2.0
- WAI AA
This site is built with the Open Source content management system WordPress. The WordPress community is committed to making sure that WordPress is an accessible tool for building websites and that WordPress helps you create websites that are themselves accessible.
In order to validate our code, we have used Bobby 5.0.
“Bobby is a comprehensive web accessibility software tool designed to help expose and repair barriers to accessibility and encourage compliance with existing accessibility guidelines. Bobby tests for compliance with government standards, including the U.S. Government’s Section 508. It offers prioritized suggestions based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines provided by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Access Initiative. Bobby allows developers to test web pages and generate summary reports highlighting critical accessibility issues before posting content to live servers.”
The website has been tested on most of today’s leading browsers, for optimum viewing of the website we recommend a screen resolution of 1024×768.
