Measuring Compassion Accessibility Statement

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Known issues

We are aware that some parts of our website are not fully accessible. These include:

  • Not all images have a meaningful text alternative
  • Some link text isn’t meaningful out of context

We are working to address areas where our accessibility needs improvement.
