We have tried to make this website as accessible as possible and easy to use for everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability.
All our page templates comply with the WCAG Priority 2 checkpoints as a minimum requirement. And we make every effort to ensure that all the content on our site meets this standard too.
We developed the design and layout of the site so that it can be used by blind or partially sighted users. It is compatible with screen readers.
We are making every effort to ensure that we don't exclude any users. For example:
- We try to use clear and simple language.
- We use alternative text for all our images
- We provide skip to navigation and content links at the top of each page
- We provide access keys to each page of the website
- The HTML we produce conforms to the standard: XHTML 1.0 Strict
- We have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast.
We try to publish all our text content as accessible HTML rather than in other formats such as PDF. Where we do publish PDFs or other formats our policy is to make them as accessible as we can.
Access keys let you navigate around Kilmarnock Barassie without using your mouse.

Notes & feedback
Please note that some assistive technology tools such as the IBM HomePage Reader and WindowEyes already make use of the alt+[access key] combinations. As such, users of these tools will not be able to use these access keys.
These access key assignments are based on research into best practice across the web (in an attempt to be consistent with other sites' access keys), and an understanding of the key navigation requirements of Kilmarnock Barassie users.
