Making our website accessible is a core aim of The Friends of St Ninian's and we will try and ensure that it is usable with a broad range of operating systems and browsers. Please email us at if you have any questions or suggestions regarding the accessibility of this website.

As a standard, we employ all the following methods to ensure our site is accessible to as many people as possible:

  • All images have an alternative text description, unless the images are decorative only
  • Our stylesheets allow for text resizing using relative font sizes, and is comptabitle with the View – Text Size option in the browser toolbar
  • All content is accessible and usable when images, styling and javascript is turned 'off' in the browser, or when your browser does not support stylesheets
  • The website is viewable/readable when website colours are turned 'off'
  • We are committed to Plain English in all our written content
  • Our site has been designed without the use of tables except where we need to represent normally tabulated content i.e timetables
  • A non-serif font is used for easier readability
  • We do not use all-capitals for emphasis
  • All form controls are appropriately and explicitly labeled.
  • We provide e-mail addresses as an alternative form of access for our online forms.
  • We use a hierarchy of heading markups i.e an <h1> tag for main headings, <h2> for secondary headings etc which makes it easier for screen readers to work out the stucture of a page
  • Our site can be viewed in a logical order when all styling is turned off
