The Tesco Personal Finance website has been built with accessiblity in mind, and we aim to comply with most W3C level 2 specifications, and to ensure that we follow the WAI accessibility guidelines.
This should provide people using assistive technologies, such as screen-readers, the ability to access the content as easily as those people using traditional browsing methods.
Some of the things we have done to ensure this site is as accessible as possible include:
The site is built using relative font sizes, this means that users can take advantage of the browser tools which allow for the text in web pages to be resized to a more comfortable level. In browsers such as Internet Explorer and FireFox you can resize the text by selecting View and then Text Size in the browser menu bar.
All non-decorative images use the alt attribute to provide descriptive text alternatives.
The site has been thoroughly tested in many modern browsers on Windows & MacOS.
Despite being built to modern, compliant standards, it should also 'degrade gracefully' in older browsers. This means it may not look the same, but all the information in the site will still be accessible.
