Accessibility

British Beds Worldwide Accessibility – We are committed to ensuring everyone can access our website. This includes people with sight problems, hearing, mobility and cognitive impairments as well as users with dial-up, older browsers or newer technologies such as smartphones and tablets.

This website endeavours to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people.

This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.

Whilst the British Beds Worldwide Ltd website strives to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.

Image Alt text and accessibility

As standard we only use Alt text where an image conveys essential information for the meaning of the page – for example a diagram about how to do something. Where an image is purely decorative we don’t add alt text as this is superfluous information, and extra ‘noise’ that someone using a screen reader will have to get through before reaching the essential information on a page. Any images which don’t have alt text have an empty alt tag which is indicated using “”.
