Web Accessibility

Staging site


What do we mean by web accessibility?

World Land Trust (WLT) interprets web accessibility to mean the ease with which visitors to a website can find the information they require.

What are our aims?

We believe that anybody should be able to access the information our website contains, regardless of the technology they are using to do so. We also aim to make our website easy to use in general, so that visitors with different levels of web experience, or whose first language is not English, are still able to make use of the site. Looking ahead, we will continue to make improvements to the site. All new content will conform to the standards where possible and old content will be made accessible over time. All pages with content that may currently not be completely accessible will have other alternatives whenever possible, such as printable versions or a telephone service.

Using the accessibility tools on your browser

There are some basic functions built into most browsers to allow you to control the presentation of websites. Below are instructions for changing the text size and colours in Internet Explorer, and for switching on JavaScript, which is needed to donate to or order from World Land Trust online. We use JavaScript to help check that the information we need to process a donation or order has been completed correctly, and to alert you, the user, to options available on the website.

For further information and instructions for other browsers, please use the help menu at the top of your browser window.

Changing the text size

To change the text size in Internet Explorer, click on View, then Text Size, and then select the size you want.
