Web content accessibility

Just as our practice celebrates and values diversity of thought and the diversity of background of our people, Max Fordham is committed to ensuring accessibility for everyone. Our website is no exception. We aim to continually improve the user experience of for everyone, applying the relevant accessibility standards to the different sections, functions, and content within our website.

This website has been designed and developed by Ten4 Design to facilitate the promotion of Max Fordham’s portfolio, expertise, and services. It is hereafter referred to as “the website”. This accessibility statement applies to the website only.

Measures to support accessibility

We aim to make the website accessible to the widest possible audience. This means, for example, you should be able to:

  • Change colours, contrast levels and fonts using your device settings.
  • Zoom in up to 300% without compromising text or images.
  • Navigate the website using just a keyboard.
  • Navigate the website using speech recognition software.
  • Listen to the website using a screen reader.
  • Watch all narrative videos with closed captions.

Conformance status

We believe the website is compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.2 AA standard.

Limitations and alternatives

Despite our best efforts to ensure accessibility of the website, there may be some limitations.

The content listed below is known to have limited accessibility. Please contact us if you observe an issue not listed below.

  • While most narrative videos on the website are accompanied by correctly encoded closed captions, there may, on occasion, be videos that either contain “burned-in captions” (where the captions form part of the video itself and cannot be changed according to per personal requirements), or no closed captions.
  • While we have made every effort to provide alt text for all images used on the site, we are aware that some alt text contains extraneous information; we are working to resolve the issue.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared in June 2024. The website was tested for compliance against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines V2.2 level A and AA using a combination of automated tools and manual checks.
