The ERA-AGE website has been built with accessibility in mind. It provides access to all users, including those with disabilities, using assistive technologies such as screenreaders.

Text only version:

Should you find the website has to much imagery or you like to be able to read the text with out any graphical representation of the website, clicking text only version will reformat the website onscreen to display text only. Also when this view is chosen, you are still able to increase and decrease the font size, making it very clear to read.

Alt text & Titles

All non-decorative images utilise the alt attribute to provide descriptive text alternatives and, where appropriate, descriptive title attributes have been added to links providing a fuller description of the destination page.


There is no reliance upon client-side scripting (javascript) for functionality as a percentage of users have this disabled. The site contains no popup windows, or client-side form validation.

Built to standards

The ERA-AGE website is built to W3C specifications. We aim to make all XHTML and CSS valid, and to follow the WAI accessibility guidelines. In some cases content editors may inadvertently add non-comforming content. Should you find a page that does not validate or causes any problems then please let us know.

Browser Compatibility

The site has been thoroughly tested in many modern browsers on Windows, MacOS and Linux. It is also built to "degrade gracefully" in older browsers. This means it may not look the same, but all the information in the site will still be accessible. We are always looking to improve the site, so if you encounter any problems please use our contact form to let us know.
