Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to (the “Website), which is run by Artists Writers & Artisans, Inc. (“AWA“, “the Company“, “we“, “us” or “our“). 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; and
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver).

We have also tried to make the Website text as simple as possible to understand, within the constraints of the subject matter. Additional information on making your device easier to use if you have a disability is available at AbilityNet.

Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations

  • Company logos are included in the news highlight images – we will seek to explain those in alt text.
