We are committed to making our web-site as accessible as possible to all users. Our efforts include:
Using plain language, without using travel industry or other jargon. Where we use abbreviations, the full phrase will be referenced with its first usage on the page.
Maintaining an easy to use navigation structure throughout, including a 'mega-menu' from the top navigation panel to allow users to navigate directly to the destination of their choice immediately.
Limiting template style to a number appropriate to the size of the site and using a template structure in line with the structure of information in the site. For example, the layout of our Kenya page is the same as the layout for our Vietnam page.
Using a clear heading structure throughout and ensuring that large blocks of information are split into manageable chunks using paragraphs, lists, tabs and other HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language) according to category of information to create a logical information structure.
Using a 'breadcrumb trail' throughout to allow users to navigate backwards as required.
Using a plain background to ensure clarity of text and using a font colour with sufficient contrast for those with visual impairments.
Using meaningful alternative attributes (sometimes referred to as 'alt tags') on images where appropriate.
Using hyperlinks appropriate to the context and purpose of the link.
Coding our site to display in all the main modern browser types, including but not limited to Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox and Safari.
Coding our site so that headings appear in a legible back-up font if our logotype is not compatible with your own browser.
Allowing users to amend to resize all text using their browser settings. To increase text size:
