Site Accessibility

Slane Castle is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adhere to parts of the available standards and guidelines.

The following are some of the things that we have implemented to support accessibility:

Fully responsive website
Content is accessed through a keyboard in an accessible way
Naming of images
Heading styles are used correctly to organise the structure of the content
Implemented a content management system that supports accessibility
Using colour with care
Forms designed for accessibility

The following are some shortfalls we will work on to improve:

Not all images have alt attributes
The website is not fully conformant to WCAG 2.1
