Accessibility

The CAP THAT! website has been designed to conform to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 ‘AA’ level. Compliance with this standard has been achieved through practical implementation during development and user testing.

Ensuring access for all users is important to us. We note that some resources provided on this website are from third parties of which we have no control over, therefore may not meet 'AA' compliance.
