Screen Readers

We've attempted to keep the website as friendly as possible to users of screen reader software. Navigation links are generally in lists and pages are separated by correct headings, with the level 1 heading denoting the start of page content, and level 2 headings dividing it further.

If you regularly use a screen-reader to read websites and find the RoSPA site difficult to navigate, please do not hesitate to contact us and give us feedback. Click here to go to the Contact Us page.

All images on the site use alternative text tags, and have been made descriptive wherever possible, so that screen readers can communicate their content.

Finally, all tables containing data use a summary tag, so that table content can be quickly ascertained.
