Acorn Rewards recognises the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available for all user groups. This page explains:
The Acorn Rewards website currently supports the following browsers: Internet Explorer 7 and upwards, Mozilla Firefox 4 and upwards, Opera 7 and upwards, Google Chrome and Apple Safari 7 and upwards. All pages on the site are valid Hyper Text Mark-up Language (XHTML) 1.0 Transitional and use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). This website follows the Worldwide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0, meeting all level double-A checkpoints.
The Acorn Rewards website is being developed to support Internet users who have disabilities and we believe it is compliant with RNIB's See It Right accessibility criteria. Where appropriate blind or visually impaired users are directed to our telephone and textphone Helpdesk teams who are able to provide assistance, including providing information in an accessible format for any user who requests it. All users have access to a wide range of benefits over the phone, and all discounted vouchers can also be purchased in this way.
Please note, some discounts require users to access external websites, these are controlled by third parties and so differing standards of accessibility may apply on these sites.
Our navigation mechanisms are accessible by screen readers and voice browsers.
Text equivalents of all images have been provided and the relevant page and table header tags inserted.
We have provided the facility to change the font size of the text used on our web pages. If you are using Internet Explorer, select View from the menu bar, then Text Size and select from Smallest to Largest. In Netscape, select View from the menu bar, then Text Size and select from Smaller, Larger, % values or Other.
We have checked the site font and background colour combinations for the different colour blindness conditions and ensured that items are not referenced by colour alone.
Should you wish to change the colour of text and background by introducing your own style sheet, please follow the instructions in changing the style sheet below.
We do not use any audio on the website; however the videos uploaded on the site contain audio content.
Users may import their own style sheet into the website. In Internet Explorer, select Tools, then Internet Options and then Accessibility. Next click on any or all of three checkboxes to ignore colours, font styles or font sizes. In the same window, you can change the style sheet by clicking the checkbox that says 'Format document using my style sheet', then simply browse to your preferred style sheet and click ok. In Netscape, select Edit, then Preferences and then Appearance. You will then be given a choice of colours and fonts.Home
