Accessibility

Our aim is to make the Mission Aviation Fellowship UK (MAF UK) website accessible to all, including those users with visual, cognitive, hearing or mobility impairments.

The site is being made compatible with adaptive technologies currently used to help people with disabilities to use computers. This includes screen-reading/magnifying software, voice-activated input software, and switch access.

If you use adaptive technology and are having problems accessing information on the site, please let us know which material you wanted to access and what the difficulty you experienced was by emailing the Web Editor

Guidelines

Our aim is that the MAF UK site will comply with the Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines 1.0. These are the definitive international guidelines for ensuring accessibility.

The guidelines are divided into three levels of compliance: Single-A (what you must do), Double-A (what you should do), and Triple-A (what you may do). Specifically, we are working on ensuring that the site complies with Double-A standard. This means we will meet all priority one and two checkpoints of the guidelines.

MAF UK are committed to attaining the following Web Accessibility standards:

  • To give images appropriate alternative text so that the information they contain is conveyed to those who cannot see them
  • To make the text of links adequately meaningful so that their target is clear when they are read out of context 
  • To make the language of the text plain and easy to understand so that the pages have good readability 
  • To make text resizable by users in their browser 
  • To provide subtitles or transcripts for video content so that the information it contains is conveyed to those who cannot hear it or see it 
  • To provide transcripts for audio content so that the information it contains is conveyed to those who cannot hear it 
  • To provide controls for interactive multimedia content so that its movement can be frozen 
  • To ensure that foreground and background colours contrast sufficiently so that information is conveyed to those who have difficulty distinguishing colours. 
  • To provide a sitemap to aid those who have trouble using the main navigation system
