Disability Policy

Black Church Print Studio recognises the rights of people with disabilities and accommodates their needs where possible without prejudice or unfavourable treatment.

 

While the Studio is not wheelchair accessible due to structural constraints, we make every effort to ensure that public presentations of work take place in locations that offer full access. We are keen to find alternative solutions to workspace access issues. We have invested in portable equipment and offer an outreach programme in schools and other institutions.

 

Black Church Print Studio recognises and values the provision of information on our website in a format which is accessible to all, regardless of ability or disability. The site has been designed in a manner which avoids clutter through, for example, the use of plenty of white space, and provides a consistent navigation methodology throughout. The use of colour, and links back to main sections allows for easier navigation. The site has been designed to reach AA (WCAG WAI Level 2) accessibility levels. The site is developed using valid XHTML and cascading style sheets (CSS), which are screen reader friendly and make the site accessible to more of our site users. Our site content is separated from presentational elements, which makes it available to any visitors that use technologies such as a screen reader or text only browser. Accessible web sites prioritise clear content, structure and ease of navigation over visual aspects of design, however they also need not be visually unattractive, nor are they prevented from using the latest web technologies, provided that all information is still accessible to users.
