At Viewlance Inc, we aim to ensure that all of our products are informative as well as being accessible.
we are committed to making our online services inclusive because accessibility has a positive effect on general usability and we believe that websites that are accessible and usable benefit everyone.
We will continue to review, test and modify our website for usability and accessibility issues and aim to ensure maintaining compliance is part of our ongoing commitment.
We aim to achieve and maintain optimum accessibility by regularly carrying out a combination of both expert reviews and 'real' user testing. We believe that automated test tools alone are unable to assess accessibility effectively.
The top priority of Viewlance Inc is the importance of providing a website that is accessible to everyone and easy to use. On this page we outline our ongoing commitment to making our online services accessible and explain the accessibility features of this site.
Increasing the text size
We have used style sheets throughout, and users can increase or decrease the size of the text using the browser settings zoom feature.
HTML heading tags are used to convey the document layout and make it simpler for screen readers to navigate using a list of headers.
Our Navigation menus which ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and also that they can be skipped easily.
Our pages are optimized to be viewed at a screen resolution of 1200 pixels width; however the design also accommodates users viewing from 1024 pixels width upwards.

Accessibility is the word used to describe whether a product (for example, a website, mobile site, digital TV interface or application) can be used by people of all abilities and disabilities.
On a website, accessibility depends on how a person's disability affects the way they perceive information on a page and how they navigate within and between pages. Elements that affect accessibility include:
For people who can't see very well: the colours and the contrast between colours; the size of text; the choice of fonts
For people who are blind: how a screen reader interprets the elements on a page (for example, alt tags for images, and title tags for links); the inclusion of audio description for video content
For people who can't hear very well: how any audio content is represented graphically (for example, including subtitles or signing on video content)
For people who find a keyboard or mouse hard to use: the ease with which someone can navigate to parts of the page (for instance, by tabbing); auto-completion of forms
For people who find words difficult: the length of sentences and paragraphs; the complexity of the vocabulary; the choice of fonts and size of text; the availability of spelling checkers and word prediction; the opportunity to have text read out loud
We acknowledge the importance of the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) of 1995, the World Wide Web Consortiums' (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and Section 508 of the USA Federal Electronic Rehabilitation Act all of which state that provision must be made to ensure that all products and services are accessible to disabled users.
At Viewlance Inc, our accessibility policy takes into account these factors wherever possible. We ensure best practice for making web pages through our accessibility standards and guidelines.
