Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust believes very strongly that the information on our website should be easy to access by anyone. However, certain design decisions have taken into account that our target audience are amblyopic children aged 3 to 8 years.
Our website has been designed and built to meet the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) web content accessibility guidelines.
If you have any comments or queries about the accessibility of our website please contact us.
We use alternative (alt) text labels on all the graphics on the website. These appear as you hover over the graphic with a mouse and provide a description of the graphic which can be read in screen readers.
All text links have been written so that they make sense when read out of context (eg by screen readers).
Site visitors can change the size of the text on screen by using the settings in their browser as follows:
using Internet Explorer, select View > Text Size and select the preferred size.
using Netscape, select View > Text Zoom and select the preferred percentage size.
using Mozilla Firefox, select View > Text size and select increase or decrease.
using Safari, select View > Make Text Bigger or Make Text Smaller.
The colours used on the site have been carefully selected to provide appropriate contrast between text and background. They have also been checked to ensure they work for those with different colour blindness types.
Our website has been built to support keyboard only navigation through the use of access keys, a full list of access keys can be found on the site map page.
