We want everyone who visits the Lumos website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding
Lumos strives to make its services accessible and usable for all users. The Lumos website has features that allow its users to find the information they need in the way they find easiest.
To help us make the Lumos website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.
This website has been built to comply with World Wide Web Consortiums (WCAG) 2.0 standards and has been through rigorous testing with the Digital Accessibility Centre. Lumos are in the process of resubmitting the site to the Digital Accessibility Centre for certification and will ensure the certificate is added to the site once it has passed.
All images have ALT tags. Where appropriate, ALT tags provide screen reader users and those with images turned off with a description of the content of the picture.
Text/sound alternative to video
Lumos use YouTube or Vimeo to host video content on the website. Guidance on using screen readers with YouTube and Vimeo can be found here and here.
