Accessibility Statement

Andrew Yule Insurance recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to all user groups, including the disabled, the visually impaired and those with motor deficiencies and cognitive disabilities. This statement explains the accessibility features we have implemented to help you use our website. They help to improve navigation for screen readers, keyboard navigation and text-only browsers among other things. Please let us know if you have any questions or feedback regarding the accessibility of this site or if you experience any difficulty using it. Alternatively you can call us on 0141 634 6827.

General information
We’ve designed this site with accessibility in mind. Some of the general features include:

  * The use of clear, simple language, which is easy to understand.
  * The use of common web conventions.
  * Avoiding the use of blinking or flickering elements.
  * The use of validated HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)

Standards Compliance
We have strived to ensure our website conforms to level A compliance as specified by the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

Background, text and colour
Careful use of text colours, size and background colours can help people with a range of visual impairments.

Font and text size
While we’ve used clear, legible font for all text and headings. In the Firefox browser, select View, then Text Size, and then choose increase, or decrease.

Style sheets
This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout. Where possible, we’ve also made our website navigable, usable and readable if your browsing device does not support style sheets.

Non-text elements
Providing alternatives for non-text elements gives visually impaired and screen-reader users wider access to our website.

Links and navigation
Structuring a website so it is simple and streamlined to use helps to improve the experience for all. For example, placing page items in a logical order and making the website easy to navigate helps people with visual impairments, motor deficiencies and cognitive disabilities.

Navigation
We’ve made navigation links consistent between pages throughout the site. The site is also fully accessible using only the keyboard and can be navigated with scripting disabled.

Pop-up windows
Our website does not use pop-up windows.

Forms and tables
Clearly labelled tables help readers to understand the content on a page and to fill in content into correct form fields.
