We're improving the accessibility of this website

We want everyone who visits the Visit Swansea Bay website to be able to use it and we are trying to exceed the Public Sector Bodies Accessibility Regulations 2018.

What are we doing?

To help us make the website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Visit Swansea Bay website.

We want the site to be:

  • free of jargon, using simple, plain English and Welsh
  • easy to search, so you can search and retrieve information about our services without having any knowledge of the site’s structure, or what we call things

We try:

  • to present information in a logical order and write clearly and simply using everyday words and short sentences
  • keep our web page design simple and consistent

How are we doing?

We’ve worked hard on the new website and believe we’re near to achieving our goal of Level AA accessibility. We continue to monitor the website regularly to maintain this, and are planning further improvements over the coming months but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.

My Web, My Way

This is a website (from the BBC) which aims to help arm web audiences with the tools and understanding which will enable them to make the most of the world-wide web, whatever their ability or disability.

The site provides advice and help to all those people who would benefit from making changes to their browser, operating system, or computer to be able to view the web in a more accessible way.

The site is not only for those with disabilities (visual, hearing, motor, cognitive or learning impairments) but also, for example, for those people with minor vision impairments who would not consider themselves to have a disability.
