This is the official accessibility statement for MacCulloch & Wallis website.
The MacCulloch & Wallis website has been built with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. This has been achieved by adhering to best practices, such as compliance with W3C standards, and by careful reference to the standards set out by other organisations to improve access by people with disabilities.
This accessibility statement records the main steps that we have taken to accommodate the needs of disabled people:

- The pages on this website have been built to comply with a minimum standard of WCAG AA, complying with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.
- All pages on this site validate as HTML 4.01 Transitional.
- All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2, H3 and H4 tags for subtitles.
- All pages contain a link to the home page, and the menu system has been constructed in a consistent fashion throughout the website. The additional breadcrumb navigation system and selective quick links boxes are designed to reinforce awareness of the location of the page that is being viewed within the website, and to increase overall access to all of the information that is available.
- All pages on the website include a search box (access key 4).
- Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail. Links are written to make sense out of context.
- There are no links that open new windows without warning.
All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Complex images include LONGDESC attributes or inline descriptions to explain the significance of each image to non-visual readers.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified text size option in visual browsers.
The most common visual browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer and we have provided the following description of how to change your font size display in MSIE version 6:
- Select 'View' from the top pull down menu options.
- Select 'Font Size' from the View menu options.
- Select the font size that you prefer from the list of five available options.
- Many website visitors with impaired vision need to increase the font size from the default Medium setting to Larger or Largest..
- Some visually impaired web users need to take further steps to make websites visible. Internet Explorer and many other browsers enable you to specify your own Cascading Style Sheet that will override the styling of the websites that you view. This will give you full control of the visual appearance of the text in websites. You can find out more about specifying your own CSS file by using the Help function within your web browser software.
