• Accessibility

    Roadchef Ltd recognises and values the provision of information on this website in a format, which is accessible to all, regardless of ability or disability.

    To ensure that this happens, this website has been developed using valid HTML and cascading style sheets (CSS). Our site content can be separated from presentational elements, which makes it available to any visitor who uses technologies such as a screen reader or text-only browser.

    What is an accessible website?

    An accessible site is one that accommodates the full range of users. Designing for accessibility therefore means accepting that, for online information, there is:

    No standard information user
    No standard device for browsing information

    An accessible website does not exclude anybody due to:

    Their abilities
    The method they choose to access the web

    Accessible websites prioritise clear content, structure and ease of navigation over frilly aspects of design, however they also need not be visually unattractive, nor are they prevented from using the latest web technologies, provided that all information is still accessible to users.

    You may use your browser settings to change the text size for all the websites that you visit. The technique for doing this is slightly different depending on the browser that you use:

    Internet Explorer: Select the 'View' menu (at the top of the screen), and select one of the options under 'Text Size'. The default setting is ‘Medium’.

    Mozilla Firefox: Select the 'View' menu, and then select ‘Increase’, ‘Decrease’ or ‘Normal’.

    Opera: Select the 'View' menu, then one of the 'Zoom' percentage options.

    Netscape: Select the 'View' menu, then one of the 'Text Zoom' options.

    Other browsers may also have similar options available. Please consult the documentation provided with your browser if similar options to the ones above are not available.

    The web: access and inclusion for disabled people.

    The results of a formal investigation by the Disability Rights Commission, published in April 2004, showed that more than 80% of websites are difficult for disabled people to use. More information.
