navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including

Technical information about this website’s accessibility
Norse Stone Ltd is committed to making its website accessible, in accordance with the
Public Sector Bodies (Websites and Mobile Applications) (No. 2) Accessibility Regulations 2018.
This website is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1
AA standard, due to some missing text alternative as well as missing navigation and
interaction tools listed below.
The content listed below is non-accessible for the following reasons.
Non-compliance with the accessibility regulations
Some older images do not have a text alternative, so people using a screen reader cannot
access the information. This fails WCAG 2.1 success criterion 1.1.1 (non-text content).
We plan to add text alternatives for all images by September 2021. When we publish new
content we’ll make sure our use of images meets accessibility standards.
Navigation and accessing information
It’s not always possible to change the device orientation from horizontal to vertical
without making it more difficult to view the content.
It’s not possible for users to change text size without some of the content overlapping
or the font or colour.
Interactive tools and transactions
Some of our interactive forms and page layouts are difficult to navigate using a keyboard.
All of which are built and hosted through WIX template software.
We’ve assessed the cost of fixing the issues with navigation and accessing information, and with interactive tools and transactions. We believe that doing so now would be a disproportionate burden within the meaning of the accessibility regulations. We will make another assessment when the supplier contract is up for renewal.
Content that’s not within the scope of the accessibility regulations
PDFs and other documents
Some of our PDFs and Word documents are essential to providing our services.
For example, we have PDFs with information on how users can access our services,
and forms published as Word documents. By September 2020, we plan to
either fix these or replace them with accessible HTML pages.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018
if they’re not essential to providing our services.
Any new PDFs or Word documents we publish will meet accessibility standards.
