Accessibility

When designing its websites, Triodos Bank is committed to ensuring the website is fully accessible to everyone. In the design phase of this online annual report, all designs were tested against the WCAG 2.0 guidelines (World Wide Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0) with a view to attaining AA standard (highest standard).

Accessibility standards for this website:

Graphical design

The accessibility standards associated with the development of this site were closely informed by the experience of developing Triodos Bank’s main websites during 2010. During the building phase of both sites we asked ourselves whether each element of the website contributed to user-friendliness and accessibility.

Text resizing

We have enabled the alteration of text sizes through the text larger/smaller option at the top of the page.

Javascript

We applied javascript to improve usability of the site and make the site more visually attractive. And we have chosen to only use Flash in the report’s ‘chart generator’. With this exception wherever javascript is applied, alternatives are available so that people without javascript (and readers) can access the functionality provided.

Images

All images on the site are accompanied by an alt-text tag that identifies the image or its function.

Next steps

Although Triodos Bank aims to have a website that is fully accessible to everyone, there is still work to be done to reach this goal.
