Accessibility – CA

In Crisis?

 

Togetherall is committed to ensuring digital accessibility, whatever our members ability or disability. Our aim is to combine compelling user experiences with high levels of accessibility and inclusivity, so everyone can use our digital services, whatever their abilities or disabilities. This is informed by our social charter, to make sure all can access our services in a non-discriminatory way, so we can impact all our members lives, and provide benefits to those who commission us to provide this support. Our ongoing site development and content creation is guided by best-practice accessibility guidelines such as WCAG and ISO 30071-1.

 

Adapt your experience to your needs

 

While this site has been created to be usable ‘as is’, many people are likely to get the most accessible experience by customising their computer to suit their individual needs – for example: to get the site spoken to them, to change its colour-scheme, or increase the size of its text.

 

If that sounds like it would be useful to you, we recommend you visit: WAI’s Better Web Browsing: Tips for Customizing your Computer to read or watch videos of how these customisations (achieved by using accessibility features already on your computer, smartphone or tablet, or through installing assistive technologies) might suit you.

 

Limitations of this site’s accessibility

 

Through expert accessibility testing of our site, using representative assistive technologies used by our users, we are aware that it has some current accessibility limitations, and we are working to address these and to gain WCAG 2.1 AA compliance, over the next few months.

 

One limitation in the accessibility of our service is in The Brick Builder, which includes freeform drawing. While we cannot make that accessible to blind or keyboard users, they can use the tool’s other 2 options – sharing an image or text – to express themselves in their posts. We are also working to ensure that our site’s use of colour supports the needs of vision-impaired users who need a minimum level of colour contrast, as well as all our users who want colours to provide a calm experience.
