This website is run by InterProjects of Comberton in support of, and at no cost to, the village in memory of Mark Bennett an internet entrepreneur who setup up AfriConnect in Comberton. He subsequently worked here and in Africa providing internet connectivity to schools, hospitals and NGOs; then school teaching facilities and tablet based learning for the less well connected.
We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website in the future . For example, that means you should then be able to:
- zoom in up to 300% 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
We’ve also tried to make the website text as simple as possible to understand, although much material has been provided by contributors.
How accessible is this website?
- We know some parts of this website aren’t fully accessible
- you can’t modify the line height or spacing of text
- some PDF documents aren’t fully accessible to screen reader software
- you can’t always skip to the main content when using a screen reader.
Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Since a sub section of the site is dedicated for use, again free of charge, for the Parish Council Notices/Minutes etc., InterProjects continues to be committed to making this website accessible, in accordance with the Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018,
This website is currently partially but mostly compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to the non-compliances listed below:
- There are pages with read more / click here links.
- The archive section of the website is just that – an archive – it is not designed in line with Web Content Accessibility guideline. So there may be some historic pages where HTML isn’t perfectly formed.
- Many of our older PDFs and Word documents certainly don’t meet accessibility standards – for example, they may not be structured so they’re accessible to a screen reader.
- Some images on the website pages may not have a text alternative, so the information on them isn’t available to people using a screen reader.
When we publish new content, we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
