Our conformance claim for this site
Voices from Oxford is committed to providing an accessible web presence that offers you our webcasts and information about them in as accessible a way as possible.
We aim to comply with the following Web standards:
All pages should validate as XHTML Transitional.
The templates use Cascading Style Sheets.
These pages meet the checkpoints of the Web Accessibility Initiative’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, as specified by the University of Oxford Web Accessibility Policy to Level-AA standards, and most pages on this website conform to the AAA standard.
For further details, please see the University of Oxford’s web accessibility policy
Most of the information on this website is contained in video recordings. You will need a Flash plugin to play the videos. Adobe Flash can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.
Beside each video, you will find information about its duration and approximate size.
In case you cannot see the graphical content, every image on VFO Website contains a text description either in the alt tag or on the page itself.
Some of the information on our website is in Portable Document Format (PDF). You will need Adobe™Reader™ to read PDF files. The latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader software can be downloaded free of charge from the Adobe website.
Later versions of this software provide a number of features that improve access for users. For further information about Adobe’s PDF accessibility, please see the Adobe website.
Every link has a description that is provided when you put the mouse pointer over the link. If the link is related to an external Web (a Web page outside the VFO Website), a text message will appear informing you that a new window will be opened.
We try to ensure that link text makes sense out of context and that it accurately describes the pages it points to. You can use the “Tab” key on your keyboard (as well as your mouse) to navigate between the page links.
