Accessibility

Mirriad Advertising PLC (“Mirriad”) seeks to make its website as accessible as possible and has built the site with the following in mind:

  • the web pages are designed to be viewed on a wide range of screen resolutions;
  • you can vary the text size by using your browser’s zoom option (usually in your browser settings);
  • all necessary images have been given descriptive alternative text tags;
  • we have used text and background colour combinations that are sufficient in contrast;
  • the page structure is easy to navigate by using a clear and user-friendly menu that is visible on each page of the site and uses HTML headings;
  • Cascading Style Sheets control the presentation of pages and we have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read;
  • all forms and fields follow a logical sequence to ensure easy completion;

The website has been tested to work in all major browsers: latest editions for Firefox, Chrome, Safari and Microsoft Edge across all key devices including tablets and phones, using responsive layouts.
The website validates in W3C where possible.

If you find a part of our site that is difficult to use please contact us so that we can continue to improve our overall accessibility. Alternatively, the following tips may be useful:
