BORA Blue Ocean Research Alliance™ recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to the largest possible audience.
As such we have made every effort to ensure that our site can be easily used by all users, including those with disabilities.
We are committed to maintaining compliance with the appropriate accessibility guidelines and will continue to monitor future releases of our website in this regard.
Our Accessibility Features
We have introduced the following features to ensure the best use of our site by all of our users.
HTML Heading Tags
HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles etc. Navigation menus in this site are marked up as HTML lists to ensure that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily.
All images used in this site include descriptive alt tag attributes. Where an image has no use other than being decorative the alt tag is set to null to allow easy reading of the site by all users.
Most of the font sizes we use on our site are sizable. You can change the font size to make it either larger or smaller via your browser settings.
You can change the font size in the following ways depending on your browser;
- In Internet Explorer; select View, then Text Size, and then your preferred size.
- In Netscape; select View, then Text Zoom, and then your preferred percentage size.
This site uses cascading style sheets for all visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the use of structured semantic mark-up ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.
