GUIDANCE ON USING THE aerospace bristol WEBSITE
In order to achieve a high level of accessibility, we have ensured that the following is consistent throughout the website:
The navigation is logical and consistent throughout the website.
There is a site search at the top of each page.
Clicking on the Aerospace Bristol logo at the top of any page will direct you back to the Aerospace Bristol homepage.
Our website can be translated into over 100 languages by selecting your language of choice using the Google Translate widget which can be found in the footer at the bottom of each page.
Content is written as clearly as possible in a clear, readable font.
Headings are clear and follow a logical structure.
Text can be reduced or enlarged in size. This can be done using the built-in text resize tool accessed from links at the top of every page. Please note: Our text resizing tool stores your preference on your computer. This means that whatever option you have selected remains active when navigating the site. Your preferences can be changed at any time and the settings can be returned to default using the tool.
Text size can also be changed in most browsers by using View > Text Size in the browser menu bar or using the key combination of Ctrl and "+/-".
Text size and colour can be changed on mobile display by clicking the 'Reader View Available'. This can be done using the built-in text resize tool accessed on navigation bar at the top of the page as demonstrated in the example image for mobiles. From here you can choose what size and colour you would like your font to be.
Links are highlighted both within buttons and within written copy.
Links within content are identified by being in bold and in blue, and change colour to red when your mouse hovers over the linked word.
Links open in the same window unless they are to an external site, and in this instance, a new window will open.
To read PDF documents you will need to have the Adobe Acrobat reader which you can download for free from the Adobe website. The Adobe website also includes further information on PDF accessibility.

Colours used on our site have been chosen so they provide sufficient contrast for all users to read the pages easily.
Errors within a form will be flagged up before the form can be submitted.
Videos have not been set to play automatically.
