Accessibility statement for the National Open Youth Orchestra website

We are committed to making our website as accessible as possible. We want everyone to be able to use it, no matter what their impairments and which technologies they use.

We have created the site taking best-practice web accessibility guidelines into account, including WCAG 2.0, WCAG 2.1 and BS 8878.

Adapting your experience to your needs

We have made the site as user-friendly as we can, but you might have a better experience if you change the settings on your computer to suit your individual needs.

For example, you might want to increase the text size using the buttons at the top right of the screen or have the site spoken aloud.

For help customising your experience using accessibility features already on your computer, or by installing extra assistive technologies, try these sites:

Aspects we are currently working to fix:
