Mitchell Arts Centre exteriorAccessibility

Mitchell Arts Centre is committed to providing an accessible website.
This accessibility statement records the main steps that we have taken to accommodate the needs of disabled people:

Alternative text

Images on our website have alternative text attributes, often known as alt text. This means that when an image is used on a web page to convey information its content is also described in the alt text. This means that the image can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers. If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty in line with accepted best practice.

Navigation aids

All pages contain a link to the home page, and the menu system has been constructed in a consistent fashion throughout the website. The website is designed to reinforce awareness of the location of the page that is being viewed, and to increase overall access to all of the information that is available.
All pages on the website also include a search box.

Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.


The following is a description of how to change your font size display:

  • Select 'View' from the top menu options of your website browser.
  • Select 'Font Size' or 'Zoom' from the View menu options.
  • Select the font size that you prefer from the list of available options.

Many website visitors with impaired vision need to increase the font size from the default setting to 'Larger' or 'Largest'. Some visually impaired web users need to take further steps to make websites visible. Internet Explorer and many other browsers enable you to specify your own Cascading Style Sheet that will override the styling of the websites that you view. This will give you full control of the visual appearance of the text in websites. You can find out more about specifying your own CSS file by using the Help function within your web browser software.
