Accessibility

Thank you for visiting the On The Water website, a campaign website from the British Marine Federation.

The British Marine Federation takes pride in the accessibility of its websites, and is committed to ensuring that the On The Water website is accessible to everyone, including individuals with disabilities. This site has been designed with a number of accessibility features which are listed below.

If you have any questions regarding this Accessibility Policy, or if you have any difficulties accessing content on our website or have trouble using any aspect of the website, please do not hesitate to contact us.


 

Standards compliance

We seek to meet the Priority A, AA, and selected AAA guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Our website is tested on a regular basis using a combination of automated tools to identify potential problem areas and manual testing to ensure we meet the spirit as well as the letter of the W3C's accessibility guidelines.


Links to other websites

Please note that the On The Water website contains links to other Internet websites. Those websites are not owned, operated, controlled or reviewed by the British Marine Federation, and their webpages may not be fully compliant with our Accessibility Policy. The Accessibility Policies of those websites, and not the British Marine Federation Accessibility Policy, define the accessibility features and any questions or concerns should be directed to that website's owner.


Alternative text

Images on our website have alternative text attributes, often known as alt text. This means that when an image is used on a web page to convey information its content is also described in the alt text. When you use alt text the image can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers. If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty in line with accepted best practice.
