About us Accessibility
Camelot is committed to website accessibility and this website has been built to meet the aims of the Level Two (AA) recommendations made by the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (version 1.0). To ensure that we meet this level of accessibility we have worked closely with AbilityNet, a charitable organisation specialising in website accessibility.
If you are looking for practical accessibility help with changing your browser settings such as text size, using access keys and other accessibility features we have on our site, more information is below under the Accessibility Support section.
- The Camelot website provides uses some Adobe Reader (PDF) files. To read a PDF file with a screen reader please link to the Access Adobe website which provides useful tools and resources. Adobe also has a free online conversion tool for PDFs. All PDF files on this website open in a new window.
- All images and attachments hold text alternates (known as ALT attributes).
- Accesskeys are keyboard shortcuts for navigating around websites without a mouse. The following shortcut keys will allow you to navigate through the site's main pages:
PC users: For IE users, hold down Alt + [relevant accesskey - see below] + Return. When using other browsers on a PC, users are not required to press on the Return key.
Mac users (excepting Safari): hold down Ctrl + [relevant accesskey - see below].
You can use accesskey shortcuts to get to the following main pages:
s = Skip to content
d = Skip to search
f = Skip to navigation
h = Home
1 = Our Business
2 = Our Services
3 = Our Responsiblities

Diversity of our web users
At Camelot we want to be as inclusive as possible. In designing this site we have considered the needs of visitors with a range of challenges, such as; vision, hearing, mobility, reading and learning impairments and for people whose second language is English.
Creating and testing our sites for accessibility
To ensure that we consider both accessibility best practice and the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, we have created our own accessibility guidelines, and these are used in the design, development and ongoing maintenance of our websites.
Where possible we involve disabled users in testing our new sites and we always test our sites with adaptive technologies including screen readers, magnifiers and voice recognition software. We also regularly check the accessibility of our sites as part of an ongoing development process.
