Standards of Compliance

This site has been designed to be as widely accessible as possible.
All pages have been created with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) in mind and the International Standard Technical Specification (ISO TS 16071 – Guidance on accessibility of human computer interfaces) in mind.

Access Keys

This website uses keyboard shortcuts, or access keys, to enable keyboard-based access to some commonly used links.
Normally, you can access these shortcuts by holding down the Alt key (PC) or Ctrl key (Mac) and then the access key you want. Some browsers may require you to input Enter or Return to confirm your choice.

The access keys defined for the EBS website are:

0 Home;
1 Contact Us;
2 About Us;
3 SIPP;
4 SSAS;
5 Our People.

Support for access keys differs between browsers. Please refer to your browser documentation for details.

The main navigation links allow users to reach pages quicker in graphical browsers. The navigation is still entirely usable in text-only and non-javascript browsers.

Each page includes an internal search facility.

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

All links can be followed in any browser, even if scripting is turned off.

There are no links that open new windows without warning.

Images

Descriptive alternate text (alt) attributes are included where images are used to present content or function.

Visual Design

The sites use cascading style sheets for most of their visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.

The sites use only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified text size option in visual browsers. See section Changing text size and images.

Changing text size

This section gives you instructions on how you can change the size of the websites to make them easier to read and to view images.

The instructions are different for the two main types of browser (Internet Explorer and Netscape/Mozilla). There are also special instructions if you are using a Mac computer and alternative ways to view Adobe Acrobat documents.

The help facility on the toolbar of the browser you are using also contains information to assist you.

Browser Compatibility

All pages on this site validate to W3C’s standards. As a result, this website will be compatible with the majority of existing and future browsers.

Content is separated from style through the use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and all pages use structured semantic markup. This means header tags are used for titles and subtitles and list tags are used for the navigation menu. The content makes more sense to text browsers, screen readers and browsers without CSS support.
