Mid Europa seeks to make its website as accessible as possible,
and have built the site with the following in mind:
- The web pages are designed to be viewed on a wide range of
- You can vary the text size by using your browser's text resize
option (usually View >> Text size)
- All images have been given descriptive alternative text
- We have used text and background colour combinations that are
sufficient in contrast
- The page structure is easy to navigate by using a clear and
user friendly menu that is visible on each page of the site and
uses HTML headings
- Cascading Style Sheets control the presentation of pages and we
have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets
are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can
still be accessed and read
- All forms and fields follow a logical tab sequence to ensure
- A sitemap is available to provide
information about the layout of the website
We believe that this website meets the requirements of the level
1 and 2 criteria of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility
Initiative (WCAG WAI) 2.0 guidelines. We strive to meet level 3
whenever possible, though we adhere to the accepted standards for
accessibility and usability whenever we can although it is not
always possible to do so in all areas of the website, especially
where guidelines are still evolving. We continue to review our
solutions in line with updates to accepted accessibility guidelines
If you find a part of our site that is difficult to use please
email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so
