Website accessibility

The Wightlink website conforms to compliance as specified by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). We use: clear, simple and easily understandable language; common web conventions; and validated HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). We avoid the use of blinking or flickering elements.

We have chosen Bliss font, which people find easy to read on screen and set it against background colours that give good contrast.
