Thrings LLP is committed to making its online presence as accessible as possible for everyone. We continually review all aspects of our website and are actively working to ensure that the existing site and our future online activities meet appropriate guidelines and standards on web accessibility issues. This includes:
1. Browser compatibility
2. Text Resizing
3. Web Accessibility Initiative
4. Menu Navigation (Access Keys)
6. Reporting problems
An aspect of web accessibility is browser compatibility. The following browsers may be used to view thrings.com webpages – we optimise for the latest version of each browser:
• Microsoft Internet Explorer
• Microsoft Edge
• Mozilla Firefox
• Apple Safari
• Opera 8
• Google Chrome
• Amazon Silk
If you would like to use a screen reader to read PDF documents you can find out more at the Adobe Access website.
If you have a general problem with the size of text on websites (ours and others) there are four ways of increasing the size:
a. Change Operating System Preferences
You can change settings within Windows or Macintosh operating system to increase the size of text used – this makes all text on your computer larger (not just websites)
b. Change Browser Preferences
You can change settings within your browser to increase the default size of “normal” text – this has the effect of enlarging the text on all the websites that you visit (provided those websites have been built in an accessible way)
You can use modern browsers to enlarge any web-page – the effect is to zoom-in to the page just like enlarging an image. All “modern” browsers support this feature: Mozilla, Firefox, Safari, Edge and Internet Explorer 8+.
This website has been built in accordance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) established by the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C). Although the guidelines aim to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities there are wider benefits to adopting the guidelines as they make sites more user friendly for all.
All pages are checked in accordance with Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) guidelines and adhere/comply to these guidelines as far as possible.
You can navigate through the menu using the TAB key.
