Moodle follows Worldwide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 and best practice. Although we’ve tried to be as accessible as possible, we’re not able to fully meet every aspect of WCAG2.0 conformance. In some cases tables are used to layout content, occasionally link text may not be as descriptive as could be expected and instances do occur where labels are not associated with an input field.
Most websites, computer devices and mobile devices ensure that their products are accessible to all people of all abilities and disabilities. This page will direct you to the most frequently used devices and software. If you have any problem with changing settings, require leaflets in larger print please telephone the Support Desk (U51) on 01245 424211 or 01245 424200 extension 25632.
Should you require further support for an accessibility requirement or feel you require specialist software please contact Learner Services www.writtle.ac.uk/Learner-Services
