Accessibility

 

ICGN seeks to make its website as accessible as possible, and have built the site with the following in mind:

  • the web pages are designed to be viewed on a wide range of screen resolutions
  • you can vary the text size by using your browser's text resize option (usually View >> Text size);
  • we have used text and background colour combinations that are sufficient in contrast;
  • the page structure is easy to navigate by using a clear and user friendly menu that is visible on each page of the site and uses HTML headings;
  • all forms and fields follow a logical tab sequence to ensure easy navigation; and
  • a sitemap is available to provide information about the layout of the website.

If you find a part of our site that is difficult to use please E-mail secretariat@icgn.org so that we can continue to improve our overall accessibility. Alternatively, the following tips may be useful:
