The Reading Centre is committed to ensuring that this website is accessible to everyone and will continue to make every effort to improve the experience for all our visitors.

Using The Reading Centre website

Our website strives to uphold the principles and best practice of the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines. While we aim to comply with the WAI guidelines, we recognise that web technology has moved on since their creation, and a number of them are less applicable than at their time of publication. Our central objective is that users find our site usable and accessible.

Standard Compliance

This site is built on valid XHTML 1.0 Strict for structure and CSS 2 for presentation.

The site has been tested on most modern browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari or Opera. As we separate content and presentation the ECVI should be accessible on other browser devices.
