Accessibility

Our aim is to make Our Megastore accessible to all, including those users with visual, cognitive, hearing or mobility impairments.


We are making every effort to ensure that we don't exclude any users. For example by:

  • using clear and simple language
  • providing meaningful alternative text for images
  • ensuring the target of each link is clearly defined
  • providing a sitemap
  • ensuring the HTML code we produce conforms to the standard: XHTML; 1.0 Transitional.

If you use adaptive technology and are having problems accessing information on the site, please send us an email using our contact us form:

  • which material you wanted to access
  • the problem you experienced
  • the access technology you were using.

From the top menu bar, select View and point to Text size
  • PC - Internet Explorer 7
    
From the menu bar underneath the search field, select Page and point to Text size
  • PC - Other browsers
    
Increase text size: Hold down the CTRL key and press +
    Decrease text size: Hold down the CTRL key and press 
  • Mac - all browsers
    Increase text size: Hold down the Command key and press +
    
Decrease text size: Hold down the Command key and press 

Changing your computer screen settings

  • To change the size of the image shown on your screen on a PC running Windows 95 and upwards, go to Start > Settings > Control Panel > Display > Settings and change the desktop area by using the sliding bar.
    

On an Apple Macintosh, you can use the Monitor & Sound Control Panel to change the resolution.

Having difficulty with your keyboard or mouse?

  • You can fine-tune your mouse and keyboard settings under Start > Settings > Control Panel > Accessibility in Windows 95/98/NT/2000 and XP.

Guidelines

Our aim is that Our Megastore will comply with the Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines 2.0.
The guidelines are divided into three levels of compliance: Single-A (what you must do), Double-A (what you should do), and Triple-A (what you may do). Specifically, we are working on ensuring that the site complies with Double-A standard. This means we will meet all priority one and two checkpoints of the guidelines.
