We want our website to be accessible to everyone that uses it. We use the following standards and recommendations as a guide:
- Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (all pages conform to Level A; most conform to the Double-A or Triple-A levels)
- The Central Office of Information's Web standards and guidelines
- The World Wide Web Consortium's standards for XHTML 1.0 (Transitional) and CSS level 2.
We publish our electronic publications in PDF and/or Microsoft Word format, with occasional Microsoft Excel and Microsoft PowerPoint attachments.
You can also read Adobe’s information on accessibility and PDF format.
If you would like a version of one of our publications in an alternative format, such as Braille or large print, please telephone 0300 123 1231, or email email@example.com.
We have published three documents in easy read format. There are links to them in the right-hand column.
There are several ways to adjust the size of the text via your internet browser. You can often do this by holding Ctrl on your keyboard and rolling the wheel on your mouse. The Web Accessibility Initiative explains how to change font sizes in different browsers.
The Royal National Institute of Blind People provides information on screen magnification and browser accessibility.
Access keys let you navigate around the Ofsted website without using your mouse. The access keys we use follow the Government’s standard, with a few additions that are specific to Ofsted.
