Summary: Information about the Dr Foot.co.uk site, how to change how it looks and tips for using the site.

Using the Site

We have aimed to create sites that are available to everyone including those with sight, audio and motor impairment restrictions.

We aim to use a web font so all text is easy to read.

We have appropriate alt tags for images to convey information.

We ensure that navigation through our websites works in a consistent way.

How the Site is built for Accessibility Standards

All pages on this site are WCAG AA approved, complying with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Whilst we would like to say this is categorically so it is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.

We have strived to make all pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict.

Layout

The site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control all of the presentation and layout. Tables are only used for data presentment.

Content

The content has been written and formatted to make it accessible. For example:

Headings highlight sections of text

Sentences are short with the meaning at the beginning

Links use meaningful text

Accessibility Barriers

"I love the Dr Foot Sports Insoles! I am an avid runner, with over-pronation and a family history of foot and leg pain. The Dr Foot Sports Insoles make running possible for me. I've tried many other insoles and none of them work as well as Dr Foot. I'm currently training for my second marathon, and my Dr. Foot Sports Insoles are protecting me from injury. Thank you!"
