Accessibility

We are continually working on improvements to Ask Cornwall and are committed to making the site accessible to as many users as possible. 

We are currently working towards overall compliance with the Web Accessibility Initiative’s guidelines, we have more work to do but are working with partners to help us get there. 

Code and markup 

In order to be accessible on any device or with assistive technologies, this website has been developed with web standards in mind.  

Text to speech 

We do not provide a built-in text to speech player but Ask Cornwall has been coded to support screen reading software such as Voice over for Mac or Narrator for Windows.
