The National Army Museum is committed to ensuring that this website is accessible to the widest possible range of people. This includes those with visual impairments, cognitive and/or learning disabilities, motor difficulties and the hard of hearing.
The website aims to conform to Level AA of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/WCAG20/) as recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). These guidelines are an internationally recognised benchmark of website accessibility.
If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, or if you have difficulty using any part of it, please contact us via one of the following methods:
The website offers full functionality in all modern browsers on both PC and Mac.
The text of the website is resizable. The website also uses a recommended level of contrast between foreground and background colours. Find out how to change text size and colours via your browser.
Screen-reader users can access text regarding the appearance and/or function of non-text content.
Page functionality is available via the keyboard as well as the mouse (including video player controls).
Screen-reader and keyboard-only users can bypass the main navigation sections and jump straight to the main page content.
Captions and/or transcripts are provided with video and audio content (as appropriate).
The website does not include its own access keys as they are no longer recommended by W3C due to potential conflicts with browser and assistive technology access keys.
Some sections of our older online exhibitions have not been optimised for online accessibility. However, these will be updated over the coming months.
The website uses Portable Document Format (PDF) for certain reports and forms. If you are having difficulty accessing these documents, you can download and install free Adobe Reader software.
