Insight Accessibility Statement

Our Commitment to Accessibility

Insight recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups. We believe that improving the accessibility of the site improves the usability of the site for everyone.

We are currently working on improving our site using The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines to improve accessibility. The pages on our website conform to many of the A and AA compliance guidelines as specified by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

We strive to obey the spirit of the Equality Act 2010 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.

We're committed to making Insight accessible to all users, and we're continually striving to improve it. Some of the specific steps we have taken to improve accessibility include:

A sitemap to aid those who have trouble using the main navigation system

  • To make the language of the text plain and easy to understand so that the pages have good readability
  • To make the text of links adequately meaningful so that their target is clear when they are read out of context
  • To give images appropriate alternative text so that the information they contain is conveyed to those who cannot see them
  • To ensure that foreground and background colours contrast sufficiently so that information is conveyed to those who have difficulty distinguishing colours
  • To ensure all content can be accessed by keyboard only and that tab ordering is logical
  • To ensure all pages are structured correctly with meaningful headings and sub-headings

Our website includes the following features:

Zoom
Modern browsers can magnify websites instantly, keeping the design intact but assisting legibility for visually-impaired users.

Adobe PDF files
Some additional information is available on our website in the form of Adobe pdf files. Clicking on a link to these files will open a new browser window. We're working to make our most important documents fully accessible.

Text Resizing
You can resize the text in your browser by following these instructions:

Tabbed Content
Some areas of our site now use tabbed containers to allow you to select the information you want to read and stop the page from looking overcrowded. All the available content is read out by screen readers when the page is loaded.

Inclusive Technology
We try to provide support for non-flash and non-javascript users so that everyone can benefit from the full website experience. Where we do use flash, we provide an HTML fallback that's as true as possible to the original design.

Forms
We try to ensure that forms are completed and coded correctly, so that assistive technologies can read out the content in a logical and appropriate way.

Alt Text
We use alt text to provide helpful information contained within imagery such as product names, but we do leave it blank if the image is purely for illustration. This allows screen readers to skip this element and move to more meaningful content.
