Accessibility through supporting partners to build
unique experiences and our own webpages.
Northfork works to ensure that its website is as user-friendly as possible, and always in accordance with local web accessibility legislation.
Web accessibility aims to make web texts, images, forms and navigation accessible and understandable to the general public.
It also looks to uphold equal opportunity and equal access to information for people with disabilities, according to the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
This website has continues optimising to meet ‘world wide web consortium’ (W3C) standards.
Northfork webpages should evaluate its assessibility based on the four WCAG 2.0 principles: perceivable, operable, understandable and robust.
These particular standards enable access to a wide range of users, for instance people with blindness, deafness or learning difficulties.
Despite our efforts to achieve full website accessibility, certain material e.g documents in PDF format found on some pages may not yet be optimised. We constantly work to make this website entirely compliant.
In order to meet evolving web accessibility criteria, Northfork take into account aspects such as:
‘alt tags’ – image descriptions which help users working with screen readers to understand what the pictures are about
contrast between text and background – which is adjusted to be readable
navigability – keyboard-only navigation is available for users who have problems using a mouse
‘go to content’ link – which lets users reach the main content directly by bypassing the header
seamless spam protection – which shelters users from fake sign-ups without interacting with their website experience.
We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in this respect we welcome user recommendations. Users can get in touch by sending an email to the following email address: email@example.com
