Accessibility targets

All web pages are assessed by the guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) from the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), available at www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/. Salisbury City Hall requires that:

  • All new web pages should be written to at least AA standard.
  • New content will be either written or edited by a trained editor to ensure it is written as clearly as possible.

Compliance statement

With the exceptions listed below, all pages within the www.cityhallsalisbury.org.uk domain meet WCAG level A. We are working towards meeting WCAG level AA for all pages.

Because of our reliance on a third-party vendor, the online map part of the website does not yet meet the WCAG A or AA accessibility criteria.

Accessibility features of this website

The council website does not use frames.

The page layout and colour scheme are implemented using cascading style sheets (CSS) and can be over-ridden by the user. All text can be enlarged or reduced to suit your preferences.

All pages start with a heading 1 element. Sub-headings are used to further divide the page.

Tables are only used for tabular data (that is, they are not used for layout purposes).

We do not use access keys. Research suggests that these can sometimes conflict with shortcut keys used by assistive technologies.

All pages validate to an official W3C Document Type Definition. Pages are checked for compliance as part of the publishing process.
