CORC’s commitment to accessibility.

We want everyone to be able to use our website and we are committed to making it as accessible as possible.

To do this we are working toward adopting WCAG standards of best practice.

On this site you should be able to:

  • Zoom in up to 500% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website just using a keyboard
  • Navigate through the site using breadcrumb trails1
  • View the site clearly on your tablet, laptop, desktop or mobile phone
  • Use voice recognition technology you may have. You can find more information from Abilitynet [Opens in new window]
  • Navigate long pages by headings/subheadings using assistive technology tools or plugins
  • Skip to main content using tab on your keyboard
  • Listen to most of the website using assistive technologies – for example text to speech tools and plugins, screen readers, and inbuilt phone and/or tablet functionality

1Breadcrumb navigation can greatly enhance the way users find their way around. In terms of usability, breadcrumbs reduce the number of actions a website visitor needs to take in order to get to a higher-level page, and they improve the findability of website sections and pages. They are also an effective visual aid that indicates the location of the user within the website’s hierarchy, making it a great source of contextual information for landing pages.

Current accessibility improvement work

We know some parts of this website aren't fully accessible yet. We have many documents which date back many years, and some older materials that don’t meet current accessibility standards. We aim to improve:

  • Contrast of colours and text to make sure that the content is clear.
  • All our online forms, so they can be used using just a keyboard and for speech recognition technology to identify all form labels.
  • All recent video content to include either open captions or transcript where more appropriate.
  • Our most popular downloaded resources to meet accessibility standards.

What you can do

We are doing all we can to make the site as easy to use as possible. There are also tools available, designed to give you a better user experience. For example, you can change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs.

You can personalise your experience using accessibility features already on your computer, or by installing software or apps. You may find some of these helpful:

If you can’t access our content

To help us understand the problem as quickly as we can, it would be helpful if you could please tell us:

  • the web address or title of the page where you found a problem

  • what computer and software you use.

All constructive feedback about the accessibility or usability of our site is welcome and we promise to consider it carefully.
