Fold Ireland is committed to ensuring that this website is accessible to everyone. If you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this site, please contact us, as we are continually striving to improve the experience for all visitors and we are keen to help you find what you are looking for.

To make our website as accessible as possible and easy to use for everyone, regardless of circumstance or ability, we have completed the following:-

  • We have provided Browsealoud software which converts text to speech for those website visitors that require online reading support.
  • We try to use clear and simple language.
  • We have used larger font as standard and provided the facility to increase the font for each page. You can find this feature at the top left-hand side of each page.
  • We have rigorously tested our website and have gone through the following processes:

All our page templates comply with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Priority 2 checkpoints as recommended by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We take every effort to ensure all the content on our website meets this standard, too.

We conducted user testing for accessibility during the design and development of the site. The sitemap and navigation flow as well as the colour scheme and imagery were validated by a select group of users.

The website is compatible with screen readers, text browsers and can be navigated without the use of a mouse or keyboard.

To a large extent we try to publish all our text content as accessible HTML rather than in other formats, such as PDFs or Word documents. Where we do publish PDFs or in other formats our policy is to make them as accessible as we can.
