Accessibility

We want everyone who visits the North Devon Homes website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

What are we doing?

To help us make the North Devon Homes website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the North Devon Homes website.

How are we doing?

We've worked hard on the North Devon Homes website and believe we've achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.

Need help reading our website?

We’ve added Browsealoud; digital inclusion software from Texthelp to our website. Browsealoud helps you navigate around our site, understand our content and interact with our website independently.

Try it out - it’s free

Click on the new orange ‘speak’ button that you can see in the footer of all our website pages. This will launch the Browsealoud toolbar that docks to the top of the screen.  Now click on the first ‘pointed finger’ icon on that toolbar and then hover your mouse pointer over any text to hear it read out loud.

How does Browsealoud help?

Browsealoud offers a host of reading and translation support - helping you to access and understand our website better.  

  • text-to-speech: click on or select any text to hear it read aloud
  • translation: written and spoken translations in multiple languages
  • text magnification: enlarges text and reads it out loud
  • mp3 generation: converts selected text into an MP3 audio file
  • screen mask: blocks distractions on screen with a tinted mask
