Website Accessibility Statement

The British International Studies Association are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or circumstance.
We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website. 
This website endeavours to conform to level A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0. We make every effort to ensure that all the content on our site meets this standard too.
We are making every effort to ensure that we don't exclude any users. For example:
  • We use alternative text descriptions for all content images. Decorative graphics have null alternative attributes
  • Primary URLs on the site are human friendly
  • We try to use clear and simple language
  • We have tested the colours we use in the design for contrast
  • The main text of our printed documents are available on the site, either as accessible HTML or in other formats such as PDF
Accessibility barriers
The majority of our content is provided as web pages, but in some cases legacy content is provided in proprietary formats such as Microsoft Word, and these may not be accessible to everyone. We are aware that this can cause accessibility issues for some users, and in future this content will be provided in a more accessible format. We are currently working towards reformatting our legacy content where possible.
If you cannot fully access the information on a particular page, please inform us by contacting us at the BISA office. The option of providing content through an alternate format is potentially available to you if you are having difficulties accessing information, we do our best to accommodate existing disability guidelines.
