Accessibility Statement

We are committed to ensuring that our website is accessible to everyone. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please contact us. We are continually striving to improve the experience for all of our visitors.

Standards compliance

  • All pages on this site follow Section 508 Guidelines
  • All pages on this site follow priorities 1 & 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
  • All pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional
  • All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H2 tags are used for main titles, H3 tags for subtitles. For example, on this page, JAWS users can skip to the next section within the accessibility statement by pressing ALT+INSERT+3. Opera users can skip sections by using 'S' and 'W' to cycle forwards and backwards respectively through headings

Structural Markup

Web pages on www.adept-systems.co.uk include 4 different areas:

  • A header bar with overview navigation
  • A main content area
  • A side column
  • A main navigation column

When CSS (Cascading Styles Sheet) are not applied to a document (or when using a screen reader), the 4 areas are read in the above order.


  • Unless they are purely decorative items, all images used on this web site have suitable alt attributes
  • Content is usable/accessible with images disabled
  • The header navigation on this site uses an Image Replacement technique that makes the links accessible to non-visual browsers


  • Many links have title attributes which describe the link in greater detail, unless the text of the link already fully describes the target
  • Links are written to make sense out of context
  • The first link in every document is a 'SkipNav'; it is to skip directly to what is considered the main section of the page (the content). We have implemented this feature in a way that it allows Internet Explorer users to tab through (past that target link)
  • URLs are permanent whenever possible


  • All form controls are appropriately and explicitly labeled
  • We provide an email address as an alternative form of access for our online forms
  • Form validation routine does not rely on client-side script


  • We are using non obtrusive client-side scripts
  • Content of this web site is usable without JavaScript support

Pop up Windows

  • In visual browsers, unless Javascript is disabled, a small icon appears next to links to external resources, the title attribute of these links says '[opens in new window]'
  • Browsers with popup blockers should be able to access these external documents

Visual design

  • This site uses Cascading Style Sheets for visual layout
  • This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified 'text size' option in visual browsers
  • If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheet, the content of each page is still readable
  • Any information conveyed through the use of color is also available without color (i.e. text based)
