In order to achieve this the BBC My Web website provides useful hints/tips/guides to assist you if you have difficulty using the internet or have any accessibility issues.
Images and alt tags
We have avoided using excessive graphics within the web site where possible to ensure quick download times and access to information which cannot be read when in image format.
Where images have been used we have added ‘Alt’ tags – text alternatives so that you can still see what the image is meant to convey even if it doesn’t load or if you have chosen to browse with the images switched off or you are using something like a screen reader to read the web page rather than view.
This website has been designed to work with the following browsers. If you are experiencing issues with the website it is recommended that you install the latest version of the browser.

- Google Chrome
Later versions of these browsers should continue to be compatible.
We have ensured our site conforms to W3C standards for xhtml and css. Adhering to these standards should make our site accessible across browsers which adhere to the same standards, and should make our pages more accessible to those using screen readers and similar devices.
Throughout the site we have tried to keep the navigation consistent. Certain pages are available from every single page on the website. All image links have text alternatives.
