Help with using this website and accessibility features:
Tiptree Parish Council endeavour to make this website as accessible as possible to everyone, including those with disabilities and those who use assistive technologies to browse the web. Some of the ways in which we strive to achieve this are as follows:
Changing Colours, font, text size and other settings:
All modern browsers allow you to change colours and font sizes. We’ve tried to create a site which doesn’t get in the way when you change these settings.
For advice on changing settings, check out the BBC’s accessibility pages.
You can choose your operating system (e.g Windows), your Browser (e.g Internet Explorer) and the problem you’re trying to fix. You’ll then get lots of relevant advice on accessibility settings.
A screen reader is a program which reads out the information displayed on your computer to you. Screen Readers can be useful to enable blind and partially sighted people to browse the internet and carry out other tasks using their computer.
There are a variety of Screen Readers available via the internet. The following websites contain information regarding accessibility software and resources:
We try to write in plain English and avoid jargon. If you don’t understand something, please let us know.
Whilst Tiptree Parish Council strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. Currently, we have a known issue in the title bar at the top of each page, which creates (a) a False sub-heading which can confuse some screen readers, and (b) a less than ideal contrast between the background and foreground. These issues in the title bar are expected to be resolved by July 2021.
