How This Benefits Disabled Visitors
To illustrate how compliancy has made this site more accessible, we have listed representative disabilities below and explained how this site meets the users' needs.
Those with visual impairments (e.g. myopia) can scale on all pages on the site to suit their own requirement. All text on pages is scaled, including all menu items. Where images are used to convey information, text-based alternative descriptions are provided.
There is no content on this site that cannot be accessed by deaf or hard of hearing people. If we were to include audio clips we would also provide a text version of the soundtrack. If we were to include movie clips or video streaming we would also provide time-indexed subtitles.
This site may be accessed using voice-controlled computer and web browser.
The layout of this site is uniform on all pages. The main menu is structured identically on all pages (i.e. any page can be accessed from anywhere in the site).
There are no animated images or flashing text on this site which could – in extreme cases – cause difficulty for some people with particular neurological disorders.
We are committed to providing an accessible service at DEAL Group. If you experience problems or have any suggestions for improvement, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us on 07900 690 118.
