General statement

Iniva recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to everyone. This statement outlines the accessibility features of this website. If you have any questions about any aspect of the accessibility of this site, please get in touch using the contact information at the bottom of the page.

Accessibility features

The following features improve navigation for screen reader users, keyboard navigation and users of text-only browsers.

Access keys

Access keys are keyboard shortcuts that work instead of a mouse for navigation. In Internet Explorer with Windows, you can press ALT + an access key; on a Macintosh, you can press Control + an access key. Then press Enter to activate the link.

The following access keys are available throughout the website:

n – Jump to Navigation
c – Jump to Content
0 – Jump to Homepage
1 – Jump to Search

These access keys have been chosen to follow the UK government website guidelines where applicable. Wherever possible, they also avoid conflicting with commonly used screen reader keyboard shortcuts.


We are aware that at present not all of the images in this website include descriptive alt attributes. This is because many images have been incorporated from Iniva's previous website and digital archive where this feature was not available. We are currently working on tagging all content images with descriptive alt attributes to meet our accessibility targets. Purely decorative graphics include empty alt attributes.

Font size and colours

Pages use Cascading Stylesheets for layout and presentation. This styling can be turned off or modified for different needs. The BBC has an excellent guide on how to change the display settings in your browser.

Video and audio content

Video and audio content requires the Adobe Flash Player to run. Where possible we provide links to transcripts of the content.


This site is fully accessible if scripting is unavailable.

Standards compliance

Our pages conform at a minimum to Level A compliance as specified by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines and endorsed by the Royal National Institute for the Blind (RNIB). The majority of Level AA and AAA requirements are also met.

The majority of pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional and use structured semantic markup. The CSS validates.

We are committed to the ethos of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) 1995 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Disability Rights Commission (DRC).
