South Cambridgeshire District Council, in partnership with 3C ICT, has designed this site to be as accessible as possible to all our citizens. We continually review our site and modify pages to remove accessibility problems for people with disabilities and to make information more accessible for all users. All of our content is checked for plain English, and we aim to use a written style which is straightforward and understandable.
Some users with certain visual impairments may find that the default text size of websites make them difficult to read. All of the text elements of the South Cambridgeshire site can be expanded by making use of browser functionality, as set out below:
Internet Explorer 7 & 8
Internet Explorer 6
Mozilla Firefox 3.0
Mozilla Firefox 2.0
Other browser software will make use of similar functionality, most likely available from the 'View' option or equivalent.
Certain users may need to alter the default combination of black text on a white or light green background that is used on the South Cambridgeshire website. If necessary, the combination of background and text colour can be controlled in the following way:
Internet Explorer 6.0 and 7.0
Mozilla Firefox 2.0 and 3.0
If you would like to see the Alt (alternative) Text on images in the Firefox Browser, there is an add-on you can download for free, called Popup ALT Attribute from Firefox.
Do you need help in making the web easier to use? The BBC's My Web My Way site explains the many ways you can change your browser, computer, keyboard and mouse settings to make the web more accessible for you.
In order to view some of the documents on this site you will require Adobe Acrobat Reader. The Adobe website gives instructions on how to download/install the viewer for free.
Acrobat provides several preferences that help make the reading of PDFs more accessible for visually impaired and motion-impaired users, including preferences that control how PDFs appear on the screen and are read by a screen reader.
We may also provide our documents in other formats such as Microsoft Word, Excel and PowerPoint - all are part of the Microsoft Office Suite. Microsoft provide viewers for all of these types of software, for free, so that you can view them without having to purchase their software.
South Cambridgeshire District Council will try to provide key documents in other formats such as large text, Braille, audio or in other languages. Email: email@example.com or call: 03450 450 500.
