This is the accessibility statement for the Oxford University Department for Continuing Education website. It covers the main site at www.conted.ox.ac.uk/. Other sites which we link to are not covered by this statement.
Improvements to the accessibility and usability of this site are ongoing. If you have any questions or comments about the accessibility of the Department's web pages, please contact the webmaster.
Top level pages use a consistent navigation system (visually, a blue bar across the top of the page, and a blue box to the left of the page).
Tables are used only to present tabular data, and never for layout purposes.
Content images used in top level pages include descriptive ALT attributes.
Visual design and layout
This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets at all, the content of each page is still readable. The website also uses relative font sizes, that allow text size to be changed in visual browsers. Background and foreground colours have been chosen with contrast to maximise visibility. Colours are controlled within the stylesheet and therefore may be overriden by altering your browser settings.
Non HTML formats
Where links are to non-HTML documents this is typically indicated in the text or link name. Such documents are typically PDF or Postscript files, and occasionally Word documents (.doc). When generating such files we try to make sure they are viewable in all viewers. If you experience a problem with a specific document please let us know and we will try to rectify it.
All pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional. All pages use structured semantic markup. For example, H1 is used for main page headings, and H2 for subsequent section headings within each web page.
