Cwmcarn High School aims to and is always working towards providing a website that is accessible to all of its visitors, no matter what browser you use, and whether or not you have any disabilities. Our design takes into account users who are visually impaired. Our website has the features to read out content aloud, change font size, change contrast and we've included a special font to aid the reading of dyslexic users. Our website has been developed to be compatible with popular screen reading software.
Please contact us if you wish to give us feedback so we can continue to improve the accessibility of this web site. Conformance
We aim to conform to Level Double-A compliance as specified by the W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. This also involves implementing a number of selected Priority 3 checkpoints. In general, the site aims to conform to WAI Level Double-A rating where HTML is used. Where content is made available in other formats such as Adobe Acrobat and Flash, conformance has not been achieved.
