Accessibility

In keeping with its public-service remit, and its obligations under the DDA, AMG Group will ensure that its media is accessible to people who have visual, hearing, motor or cognitive impairments.

Accessibility is a partnership between our designers, developers, third parties and the creators of the operating system, browser, and specialist assistive technologies which many disabled users employ to allow them, for example, to view websites in easier-to-read colours, with larger fonts, or as spoken text.

As such technologies have become more available and sophisticated, AMG Group will:

  • ensure that its media works well with these assistive technologies to ensure an accessible experience for disabled users
  • provide this Accessibility statement which will explain the accessibility features of our website and give with the most accessible web experience

As AMG Group focuses more on broadband and multimedia applications, we will increase the amount of our online video which is captioned, signed, or has audio description.

In those instances where the specific accessibility needs of some disabled user groups require us to create new or repurposed editorial content, we will do this, wherever appropriate, so that we become more inclusive to a wider audience online.

 

AMG Group online accessibility standards

All AMG Group online sites must comply with a growing body of Accessibility Standards across editorial, design & coding. Links to these standards can be found at: Web Accessibility Standards and Guidelines.
