Accessibility

We are committed to making the information on this website accessible to all people. To this end we have designed the Active Travel Logger website to follow guidelines set out by the W3C (the World Wide Web Consortium). The W3C WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) produces accessibility guidelines that are an internationally recognised benchmark of accessibility.

In constructing the site, we have applied all WAI Priority 1, Priority 2, and Priority 3 criteria. The benefits of this include:

  • Pages are fast to download, regardless of whether you are using broadband or a modem.
  • All pages validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional ensuring that they work with a wide variety of browsers, old and new.
  • This site uses only relative text sizes, allowing users to change font easily using their browser.
  • If your browser or browsing device does not support Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the content of each page is still readable.
  • All recent content images used in this site include descriptive ALT (i.e. alternative text) attributes. Certain decorative graphics include null ALT attributes.
  • All pages will function without JavaScript. However, certain features, such as team invites, and error checking on the Registration Form are only available when JavaScript is enabled.
The only element of this website which does not meet these criteria is the logging calendar, as it is provided by a third part developer (FullCalendar). At this time, the developer has no schedule to make the calendar software accessible. However, when this changes, we will update our calendar accordingly.

A note on the PDF document format

Some of the information on this website is available in PDF format to provide for easier reading and printing offline. However, PDF documents are not always accessible (except in the case of PDF documents created with the latest Adobe Acrobat software). Certain documents were created before this software was available.

PDF documents on this site require Adobe Acrobat Reader, which can be downloaded here.

The accessibility of this site will be maintained on an ongoing basis. We will also closely monitor developments and changes in accessibility guidelines and general website best practice.

Browser Support

The site is designed to support the following browsers:

  • Chrome on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android (Latest)
  • Firefox on Windows, Mac, iOS, Android (Latest)
  • Edge on Windows (Latest)
  • Safari on Mac, iOS (Latest)
  • Internet Explorer on Windows (10+)
