  • zoom in up to 300% on a webpage without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

Technical information about this website’s accessibility

The IFB Programme is committed to making its website accessible. This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to certain non-compliances and exemptions.

Disproportionate burden

In some cases content is embedded from third party sources such as Twitter and mapping services. We cannot control these elements as they are provided “as is” by the external service, so in such cases - where we cannot source an alternative, more accessible service - we are obliged to accept the mark-up provided.

Some of our PDFs and Microsoft Office documents may not meet accessibility standards. For example, they may not be marked up so they are accessible to a screen reader.
