Website accessibility

To support with access to the WM College website, we have made the following adjustments:

  • All images have ALT tags (text descriptions) 
  • PDF documents are optimised for web viewing 
  • Pages are structured in a semantic way that improves screen reader efficiency 
  • Text is in a web-friendly font and size 

This website has been built to adhere to accessibility guidelines, however, we know some parts of this website are not yet fully accessible for instance some older PDFs may not be fully accessible via the screen reader.  We are continuing to develop the website to ensure that as many people as possible are able to use it.
