Mayden is committed to providing software that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our software and in doing so, adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.

We endeavour to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0.

In addition to manual auditing, we also perform accessibility testing with real users which can help us identify where accessing information is problematic. We are continually seeking out solutions that will bring all of our software up to the same level of overall web accessibility.

Every website we create is tested at launch against the following details. It is our intention to keep up to date with the necessary guidelines and we are constantly making improvements to ensure compliance.

Standards Compliance

We endeavour to ensure that all pages conform to Priority 2 (AA) of the W3C WCAG 1.0 and where possible, aim to meet Priority 3 (AAA).


All pages go through testing in IE7, IE8, IE9 and the latest versions of Firefox, Chrome and Safari.

Screen resolution

All pages are designed to be viewed at a screen resolution of 1024 x 768.

Markup & validation

All pages are created using structural mark-up, meaning that HTML tags will be used for content only, not visual presentation. We always try to avoid using tables in layouts.

All markup where possible is validated to XHTML 1.0 Transitional.


The website has been designed using valid CSS 2.0. No tables or frames of any kind have been used in the design of this website. The site style sheets should accommodate any browser, including those used by mobile devices.


All text has a relative font size which means that users can resize the site text by using their browser (ctrl + / -)

High contrast

All foreground and background colours are checked to ensure sufficient contrast and we aim to provide a switchable high-contrast mode enabled by the use of an alternative CSS style sheet.


Any images intended to provide information have alternative text and those used for decorative purposes have none.


Every website contains a Site Map, Contact Details and the necessary legal statements.

Navigation aids

We endeavour to make the site accessible for the main commercial screen readers. Where possible, there is the option to skip past the navigation to the content on each page. Link text is written to make sense out of context. Many links have title attributes to describe the links in greater detail. Links open in the same window.

In the meantime, if you wish to provide any feedback concerning the accessibility of our websites, please contact us.
