The EI is committed to providing a website that is accessible to everyone
Accessibility statement for Energy Institute
This accessibility statement applies to Energy Institute’s main website - https://www.energyinst.org and any subdomains. The sites aim to meet the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 to ensure that the website is as accessible as possible. These guidelines detail the methods that should be employed to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines also helps to make a site more user friendly for all users.
We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
You can use the Tab key on your keyboard to move between links on a page. Pressing the Tab key once highlights the next link, Shift+Tab highlights the previous link.
We try to write text for our links that is descriptive and makes sense out of context. Links to files (for example PDF files and Microsoft Word documents) always open in a new window.
Contrast and images
We have tried to use sufficient colour contrast on our website to ensure that our designs are colour compliant for the benefit of colour blind and partially sighted users. We also provide text alternatives for images.
We aim to support all major browsers available today. However, for the full experience using Internet Explorer, our website works best on IE 11. This is because Microsoft Internet Explorer is now end-of-life in the Microsoft Lifecycle Policy, which means that support is gradually being withdrawn. If you are using Chrome, Edge, Firefox or Safari, these browsers now automatically update so you should be viewing our website on the latest version.
We’re always looking to improve the accessibility of this website. If you find any problems not listed on this page or think we’re not meeting accessibility requirements, please contact us and we will try to fix the problem.
