Cumbria County Council is committed to providing its online services to all sections of the public, in line with the current Disability Discrimination Act.
One of our key objectives in designing this site has been to make easily accessible to as many as possible of the people of Cumbria. In particular, we have tried to design the core parts of the site in such a way that: users who find it hard to read the standard screen display can easily alter colours and text sizes to a combination that suits them. We hope the site is straightforward to navigate using a text-only browser or a speech browser navigation using a keyboard rather than a mouse.
Because we are aiming to make as many as possible of the documents published by the County Council available through this site, we cannot check in detail whether all site contents are fully accessible. Also, we can only be certain that the core site design meets all access needs when we have had feedback from a wide range of users.
We would therefore be especially interested to hear from site users who have special access needs about their experience of using the site.
