Using our website
Mondi recognises the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available for all user groups. The website is being developed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers. Where possible, we follow the guidelines developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) http://www.w3.org/WAI/ .
Our efforts to achieve these targets include:
- Maintaining a standard layout and navigation structure throughout
- Using headings, paragraphs, lists and other HTML (HyperText Markup Language) to create a logical document structure
- Using plain backgrounds to improve the readability of all text
- Using foreground and background colour combinations which have sufficient contrast and are not known to cause problems to those with visual impairments
- Using alt attributes and/or titles on all images where appropriate, and ensuring that all alt and title attributes are meaningful
- Ensuring all hyperlinks use descriptive and meaningful text
- Avoiding short-hand language such as 'Click here'
- Always providing an alternative to scripts or other controls which rely on client device capability
- Using plain English
- Using a written style that is straightforward and understandable
We will continue to develop the website to increase the level of accessibility. This page will be updated regularly as and when further modifications are made to the website.
Finding your way around
We have tried to design our website so it's easy for you to find the information you need. If you get stuck, you'll find help pages, site maps and contacts pages.
Even fully-sighted people can find reading text on a screen difficult or tiring, so we have chosen an easy-to-see web colour scheme and a clear font type, size and colour.
If you use a screen reader
Not everyone uses a traditional browser, so we've designed our sites to work with screen readers. We use text (in ALT tags) to describe images. We use descriptive links where possible so you know where the link takes you, and we don't use frames which are difficult for screen readers and special browsers to interpret.
