Accessibility Statement

This website is run by the George Nympton and Queen's Nympton Parish Council. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means 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.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible .e.g.

  • some of the financial documents of the Council are PDFs of scans of official signed documents and hence not fully accessible to screen reader software
  • all the Agenda and Minutes of the Council are published as PDFs - although these are all simple text documents and have been tagged in accordance with good practice.
