We aim to make everyone who visits Axxela websites not only feel welcome but find the experience rewarding and fruitful – both now and in the future. In order to achieve this the best way possible, we are incorporating best practices and standards as defined by WCAG 2.0 (level AA).

We strive as much as possible to make our websites accessible to everybody because diversity and inclusion is an important part of who we are and what we stand for.

Accessibility tools

Here are a few tips below to help you better access our websites. For a more complete guide to making your computer accessible on the web, we recommend visiting the Ability Net My Computer My Way website.

Making pages easier to read in your browser

When the text is too small, web pages can be difficult to view. The most popular browsers, such as Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer, Safari and Opera support the following mouse actions and keyboard strokes to zoom in and out on a web page. (Use the Control key in Windows systems, and the Command key in Mac OS.)

  • Hold the Control/Command key and scroll up or down to zoom in or out
  • Hold the Control/Command key and press + or – to zoom in or out

Magnifying your screen is another way to make text easier to read.

All recent versions of Windows include a magnifier, which allows users to enlarge a portion of the screen. People with visual impairments, however, may find that they require fully-functional magnification software.

Read about screen magnifiers in Windows 8/RT, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP.

Users running Apple’s OS X operating systems can use the in-built Zoom feature. Read about OSX accessibility features.

Using a screen reader

Windows users can use Windows Narrator which converts on-screen text into speech. This is available in Windows 8/RT, Windows 7, and Windows Vista.

In Apple’s OSX operating system, users will find the VoiceOver feature.

In addition, third-party screen readers are available such as JAWS (Job Access With Speech) and the freeware program NVDA.

PDF files

We use PDF files to help us preserve the look and feel of our original documents. To open and view PDF files, you can download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader free of charge.

Adobe also publishes information on accessing PDFs using screen readers.
