Making our website accessible for all users

Our website is always being updated and improved. We’ve tried to build it in a way that places accessibility and usability at the centre.   

We’ve introduced many new accessibility features to help make your experience of our website as good as possible. 

We believe you should be able to access this site’s information with assistive technology, like JAWS (Job Access With Speech), NVDA (Non Visual Desktop Access), ZoomText, and Dragon Naturally Speaking. It should also be usable with screen magnifiers and your operating system’s speech recognition software.

We’d be very grateful for your feedback on how accessible our site is for you, so that we can keep improving it. Please email feedback to info@maplebrookwills.co.uk.

Assistance using computers, and the web

The BBC has a site full of useful videos and information to help you utilise the accessibility features on your computer, and tips on how to make using the web easier. You can find that information on BBC My Web, My Way.

Ensure the best experience

Making the text bigger

You may be able to change the text size in your browser.

Change the colours

We have tried to use colours on our website that make the words easy to read, but we know that some people have trouble with reading text on certain colours. You may be able to use your own colours with your browser.

Skipping to main content

If you’re using a screen reader or keyboard, use the ‘Skip to content’ link at the top of every page to skip the navigation and get to the content quickly.

Heading structure

We have done our best to ensure that all pages of our website have a correct heading structure, making them easier to navigate. As we have the correct heading structure in place for all of our web pages, any additional pages will follow this same format.

Alternative formats

If you want any information on this site in an alternative format or language please email info@maplebrookwills.co.uk with your details, and tell us what you need.

Images

To make things easier for screen reader users, all images in our site have alternative text that clearly describes what they show.

Links

Our links always use link text that makes sense out of context, so that what we’re linking to is clear to everyone.

Video

All the video content embedded on this site is available to watch with optional subtitles (or closed captions). If your browser doesn’t support frames, you can read a written transcript of the film.

To our knowledge, YouTube is the most accessible way to present videos online. However, Maplebrook Wills are unable to control the accessibility of the YouTube video functionality.

Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets, the content of each page is designed to be still readable.
