Throughout the accessible version of The Duchy of Cornwall website we
have avoided using excessive graphics. This ensures quicker download times and
access to information which cannot be read when in image format.
Where images have been used we have added ‘Alt’ tags – text alternatives. If an image doesn’t load, if you have opted to browse with images switched off, of if you are using a screen reader to access the website, then these ‘Alt’ tags will convey the contents of the image.
Throughout the site we have tried to keep the navigation consistent. Key
pages (including Home, Accessibility and About this Site) are available from
every single page on the website.
The main navigation is accessible from all the pages.
In addition to finding pages using the main navigation users of the website should also be able to find them using the 'Search' facility located at the top of every page.
