Accessibility Statement

This Accessibility Statement applies to the Support for Kent Landlords website www.supportforkentlandlords.co.uk.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website and have designed it so that it lets you edit your preferred settings, with options to:

  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

We have also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

There are also a number of customisation options for your browser and device that could help you use this website more effectively:

CSS & XHTML
We use CSS (cascading style sheets) for all layouts.  No tables are used for layout purposes.  We use valid XHTML1.1 and valid CSS as specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

Resizing text/zooming
If you find the text on our website is too small, you can resize it accordingly.

For Internet Explorer 6
Choose View > Text Size from the menu to resize the text.

For Internet Explorer 7 and 8
Choose Page > Text Size from the menu to resize the text.
Or choose Page > Zoom from the menu to resize the entire page.

For Internet Explorer 9
Choose Tools > Zoom > Zoom in

For Mozilla Firefox
Choose View > Zoom from the menu. If you select the ‘Zoom Text Only’ option, only the text will be re-sized; otherwise the entire page will be resized.

For Google Chrome
Choose Settings > Zoom from the menu.  Currently Chrome only supports page resizing and not text-only resizing.

All other browsers should be able to resize the text directly from the menu bar.

Or in many browsers, you can zoom by holding CTRL and pressing + or – . Some browsers also support zooming by holding CTRL and using the mouse scroll wheel. Please see your specific browser help pages if you are having difficulty.
