Accessibility Statement

This page documents the accessibility features of Planet Bods. It is correct of 28 October 2012. If you have any questions regarding this document, please email us.

As Planet Bods has grown over several years, some pages have more accessibility features than others. As and when pages are updated, additional functionality is added.

Standards Compliance

We aim to use valid HTML and CSS at all times throughout the site. We run regular automated checks to ensure compliance. Please note that occasionally a page may not comply with the above, but this is not intentional, and will be fixed when the problem is spotted.

All pages use structured, semantic mark-up. For example, heading tags are used for titles and sub-titles.

We aim to ensure all web pages work well in modern browsers and in a "text only" mode.

Links and Scripting

As much as possible, links include title attributes which describe the link. Those links without title attributes, generally describe the page target already.

Wherever possible, links are written to make as much sense out of context.

There are no "javascript:" pseudo-links. All links can be followed in any browser, with or without scripting.

There are no links that open new windows without warning.

Unless otherwise mentioned, scripting is not essential to view Planet Bods.

All scripts are designed to degrade nicely, and not cause errors in older browsers.

JavaScript is required to allow the viewing of Flash based content.

Images, multimedia and video content

Images used in content include descriptive ALT attributes. Purely decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.

Flash is occasionally used on the site to aid the delivery of video, audio and other multi-media functions. It is never used as the primary way to access normal content. Javascript must be enabled to view Flash content.

Visual Design

All of Planet Bods uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.

Relative font sizes are used to ensure fonts can be resized in all browsers.

If a browser does not support stylesheets, or they are turned off, the content of each page is still readable. Navigational elements feature additional labels to ensure that they make sense without the context given to them by the visual design.

When viewed without stylesheets, the page is laid out in a sensible order of content, search, additional navigation and information, section navigation and global navigation.
