Wired2Fire Ltd is committed to making our websites accessible to all users. By incorporating techniques to ensure information and resources are accessible with assistive technologies, separate resources for disabled users should not be required.

Policy statement

All web pages should be assessed by the guidelines published by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) from the World Wide Web Consortium, known as Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0, available at http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/. Wired2Fire Ltd aims for the following:

  • All new web pages should be written to at least conformance level 2 standard (AA), but to conformance level 3 standard (AAA) if possible.
  • All existing pages should meet at least conformance level 1 standard (A) of Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG10/).
  • Most pages should meet conformance level 1 standard (A) of the newer guidelines by 1 September 2011. A development plan should be in hand to make all pages conformant to at least A level within as short a time as possible.

Sites will be checked periodically.
