Accessibility colour chart to illustrate how certain colours look (yellow in this case) to those suffering from Protanopia or Deuteranopia.

This website is run by Hatley Parish Council.  We want as many people as possible to be able to use it, even if, for instance, you can’t see colours very well.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.  The BBC’s website also has a very useful section on making the web easier to use.

With this website – and, if necessary (because of your disability) specialist software and/or screen adaptor – you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts.
  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen.
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard.
  • Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software.
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
