Accessibility Statement

ClassicIrishPlays.com is dedicated to meeting the needs of people with disabilities, and recognises the importance of complying with accessibility standards. We also recognise the challenge and benefits of creating a website that focusses not only on complying with standards, but on delivering an excellent online experience to the widest possible audience, including older people and users with disabilities.

As far as possible, we aim that the website is:

  • technically accessible, in that it is possible for all users to access all information and functionality;
  • equally usable, in that it is not prohibitively difficult or time consuming for users with disabilities to carry out normal tasks;
  • capable of being adapted or configured by individual users to meet their specific needs and preferences;
  • capable of interfacing with appropriate, widely available assistive technologies employed by users.

Standards Compliance

As a minimum standard, all pages are designed to meet all Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 Level A and Level AA success criteria – the target rating which public sector bodies should achieve. However, we aim to achieve as many of the guidelines from Levels 1, 2, and 3 as practical in the design and implementation of the website.

The website uses structured semantic markup. It also uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout; this separates the structure of the site from its presentation. Pages are designed to validate as HTML5.
