Accessibility at Blenheim

We are committed to providing an accessible experience, both on site and online.

Following the W3C standards we have designed our website for ease of use, including:

  • Including descriptive alternative text with images
  • Using clear headings and easy to understand language
  • Choosing contrasting colours for colour-blind accessibility
  • A link to the homepage on every page (at the top left of the page) and a sitemap, to help with navigation.
  • Not using bespoke access keys on our site, to avoid conflict with any access keys you may have

Font sizes can be increased and decreased in your browser by following these steps:
