We are committed to providing a website that is accessible to all our users. The content on our website has many different purposes and audiences, so making sure our website is accessible is an ongoing process.
In a recent review some areas of the website were identified which need improving to meet our commitment to accessibility. We are working to address these issues.
Over the next three months we will be working to ensure that our most popular pages and tasks conform to Level AA of The World Wide Web Consortium’s WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) standards.
Within the next six months we will review the whole of the leed.gov website, to ensure all our pages are meeting Level AA standards. We will also be reviewing our accessibility statement to outline our commitment to providing an accessible website.
In the meantime, if you have accessibility needs, the BBC website provides useful information on how to make web browsing easier. They explain in more detail the many ways you can change your browser, computer, keyboard and mouse settings to make the web more accessible for you.
If you have particular concerns about the accessibility of our website you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
