|Commitment to Accessibility|
The Market Harborough Building Society is committed to making its website as accessible as possible to users with disabilities, including users who may be partially sighted, or have a physical disability. The design of our website includes a number of accessibility features including
Changing font size
We have been careful to make sure that we have not fixed the size of the textual information on the website so that visitors, who wish to, can alter the font size on the screen to make it easier to read. This is easily done with the use of the "Font Size" option available in the header of every page.
It is also possible to increase the size of the text by holding down the ctrl key on the bottom left of your keyboard whilst using the scroll wheel on the mouse to zoom in (or out) of the page.
Keyboard shortcuts control various browser functions and are often a useful and quick way of navigating through a site.
For the majority of browsers, use your Tab key to navigate forward through links (use Shift + Tab to go backwards), and Enter to activate the link.
Many other keys can be used, and will vary depending on the browser and operating system you are using.
Images and alt tags
We have avoided using excessive graphics within the website where possible to ensure quick download times and access to information which cannot be read if in image format.
Where images have been used we have added ‘Alt’ tags – text alternatives so that you will still know what the image is meant to convey even if it does not load or if you have chosen to browse with the images switched off or you are using an assistive technology like a screen reader to browse the web page rather than view.
This site uses PDF (Adobe Acrobat) file format for the publication of large and complex documents.
|To download the documents, you must have Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your PC.
The main sections of the site can be found along the top of the page. The left hand side of the page contains links related to each section. You can also navigate the site via the site map which can be found as a link at the bottom of each page.
