1. A commitment to Accessibility
Setanta Insurance is committed to making sure that everyone has access to our website and its content. Our aim is to ensure that everyone is able to read the details contained and complete applications online. Our sites have recently been redesigned to improve accessibility by following the Web Content Accessibilities Guidelines (WCAG) set by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) as part of their Web Accessibility Initiative. Our online site is currently compliant with the required WCAG ‘A’ standard, with our goal being to become compliant to WCAG ‘Double-A’ accessibility standard level.
Areas which may cause some accessibility issues:
2. Adverse effects when changing text and background colours
Where colours are used, we have tried to ensure maximum contrast between foreground and background items, according to the W3C’s suggested formula.We are aware some users need to use their own text and background colour settings. Users are able to change the colour options with ease, however, when they are changed it can cause adverse effects in the browser and certain content fails to be displayed. If you are experiencing problems with an image, please contact us.
3. Browser compatibility
You can view our web pages on a wide range of browsers, which have been tested:
• Internet Explorer 6
• Internet Explorer 7
• Netscape 7.x
Our sites fully utilise CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) to separate content from presentation, reducing file sizes and increasing download speeds. Most images have been regulated to the CSS document and where possible text alternatives for graphical content have been provided.
4. Navigational aids
Every page of the site includes a ‘Skip to main content’ and ‘Skip to help’ link at the start of each page for those using assistive technologies.All pages of the site are navigable with the keyboard, mouse, and other assistive devices.
5.Accessibility problems reporting
