Accessibility Statement North Star is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.
The site was built to ensure the accessibility and usability of this website and in doing so, adhere to internationally accepted standards and guidelines. This website endeavours to meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines Version 2.0 (WCAG 2.0) at a minimum “Double-A” (AA) rating. The guidelines, drawn up by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), explain how to make web content more accessible to people with disabilities. We seek to ensure that this website is accessible to people who use assistive technology like screen readers and speech-input software and those unable to use a mouse or a pointing device.
Accessibility features on this site include:
This site has been built using code compliant with W3C standards for HTML and CSS. The site displays correctly in current browsers and using standards-compliant HTML/CSS code means any future browsers will also display it correctly.
If you are using a public or shared computer to access this site please use https://translate.google.co.uk/ and copy the link to our website to translate.
Browsers and operating systems that we support
This website is built to support the latest three versions of evergreen browsers. Evergreen browsers are those that self-update (Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and IE10+). Where users visit using a non-evergreen browser we support those that have a global usage of 2% or greater to partially support.
List of supported browsers:
Browser updates are available free of charge from each browser provider. Operating systems can be purchased from software vendors. We will update our list of supported browsers and operating systems from time to time as the software used by our customers changes. We also endeavour to support the most popular combinations of these browsers and operating systems, for example Internet Explorer 8 with Windows 7.
Reasons to upgrade your browser
Whilst North Star strives to adhere to accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, rapid changes in technology mean is it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website. We are, however, continually seeking solutions to address accessibility issues.
