Arken endeavours at all times to make their website as accessible as reasonably possible to all users. In no way does arken seek to deliberately discriminate against any users' access to the website service in accordance with the Disability Discrimination Act 1995.

To achieve this, our website has been developed in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. These guidelines have been published by the World Wide Web Consortium to promote accessibility.

The techniques we have used to improve accessibility are as follows.

Use of Style Sheets

We have used stylesheets to control the visual elements of the website.

Alt Text

All images that are used to illustrate content include the alt attribute to provide descriptive text alternatives. Images that have a decorative function have an 'empty' alt attribute.

Link Titles

A title attribute has been added to links which describe the link in greater detail. If the text of the link provides a clear explanation of the 'target' then the title attribute has not been used.

Site Features

Consistent navigation
Scalable text
Clearly labelled graphics and image maps
No flickering or strobing graphics
Cross browser compatible

Web Standards

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout and is built to W3C standards. The XHTML and CSS is valid and the site has been built according to the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0 level A.

Browser Compatibility

We test all our sites in all modern browsers on Windows & MacOSX.

If your browser or browsing device does not support modern coding techniques, the content of each page is still readable and is presented in a logical order.
