Our website accessibility features
- We aim to conform to level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG). These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for all users.
- It has been built to comply with standards of XHTML and CSS.
- We have used heading tags to convey page structure. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2 tags for subtitles, etc.
- There is a 'Skip to content' link to help keyboard users access content quickly.
- To view any PDFs available on this site, you may need to download Adobe Reader from the Adobe website. Acrobat reader is free and relatively quick.
- We have added meaningful alternative text (known as alt text) with all images on our website. Where a user can't see the image, they will still be able to read the alt text.
- We have also added a specific tool called ReciteMe to enable particular disabled user groups to get a better experience on our website.
ReciteMe is a cloud-based web accessibility solution which enables visitors to customise the website to their needs. You can launch ReciteMe on our website by clicking on the links that appear on the right hand top corner within the website's header. The ReciteMe tool is easy to use and includes text to speech functionality, dyslexia software, an interactive dictionary, a translation tool to get the web content translated into Welsh and many other languages (100+).
Welsh Language Scheme
The GPhC recognises the cultural and linguistic needs of the Welsh speaking public and we are committed to implementing the principle of equality at every opportunity and can see the full value in providing a service to patients and the public in their chosen language. The Welsh language scheme [PDF 647 KB] has been agreed so that the GPhC can provide services to the Welsh speaking public. The ReciteMe tool enables Welsh speaking users to view all our contents in Welsh.
