The Aosdána website has been constructed to be as accessible as possible, and we are continually striving to improve accessibility to the site.

Technical Standards

We have tried to ensure that our site meets the following technical standards:

Accessibility: We aim to maintain every page of our site at WAI AA compliance level.

Code: The site is produced using W3C XHTML 1.0 for code clarity.

Formatting: In line with W3C recommendations, all formatting is in a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) file. Users may choose to disable this file and see a “plain text” version of the site if they prefer.

The website has also been designed to be compatible with most browsers. Older browser versions which lack CSS compatibility can still access the site although the content may display without its graphical layout.

Font Size

You can easily increase the size of the font using the View menu in Internet Explorer and selecting the text size option. This will allow you to quickly change the size of the text to one which is comfortable for you.

If you have any suggestions as to how we could improve the accessibility of our website please contact
