Last update: July 2023

This accessibility statement applies to the Telford College website, 

This website is run by Telford College. We want as many people as possible to be able to use our website and have taken steps to ensure that it is accessible as possible and that you can adjust hot it appears to fit your need.  

For example, that means you should be able to: 

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts 
  • zoom in up to 200% 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. 

We have implemented ReciteMe, which provides many assistive technologies – this can be accessed by clicking ‘Accessibility tools’ at the top of each web page. ReciteMe allows you to: 

  • have our website text and documents read aloud 
  • change the background colour of the website and the colour of the text 
  • change font sizes 
  • change font 
  • zoom in on any part of a web page 
  • translate our website into over 100 languages 
  • lookup any word in the dictionary 

How accessible this website is 

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible: 

  • the text will not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window 
  • some tables will not reflow neatly when you change the size of the browser window 
  • most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software 
  • there’s a limit to how far you can magnify the map on our ‘contact us’ page 
  • some labels and descriptions on forms cannot be zoomed into 200%
