Hull History Centre is committed to improving access to services and information about the Centre and our collections. To make this website as accessible as possible, the following features have been implemented:

Standards compliance

This site conforms to the WAI (Web Accessibility Initiative) guidelines. If you have any problems accessing this site, or any other technical difficulties, please use the website feedback form.

Site structure

The site has been arranged into a number of different sections to make it is easy to navigate and find information. The menus have been carefully thought-out to make it easy to find information and there is also a sitemap.

Changing the size of the text

This can be done by adjusting the setting in the web browser (usually available from the 'View' menu).

Images and alt tags

The site uses images and graphics to enhance the look and feel of the site. We have used 'Alt' tags so that you will know what the image is for those using a screen-reader or are browsing the site with images turned-off. Where non-compliant content is provided reasonable effort will be taken to make accessible and equivalent alternatives available.
