It is important to us that our website and its content is accessible as possible for all our users. This page provides more detail on the compliance status of the website.


Accessibility statement

This accessibility statement applies to the Scottish Hub for Regional Economic Development website.

We’re continuously working to make our website as accessible and usable as possible for all our visitors, of all abilities and disabilities.

This means that you should be able to do the following:

  • Control the colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • Listen to most of the website using a screen reader including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver
  • Operate keyboard-only navigation

With this new website we have also worked to ensure that page content is easier to read by breaking up heavy content.

More advice on how to make your device easier to use if you have a disability can be found at AbilityNet (link opens in a new window).
