Accessibility

Liverpool John Moores University is committed to making its website and the material provided on it accessible to as many people as possible. We have attempted to follow relevant standards and good practice for accessibility and usability whilst developing the University website, including the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. 

We are currently in the process of rebranding our marketing materials which will include a website redesign. Part of this process will be to enhance our website for accessibility purposes. 

As we are due to retire this current site we felt it would be a disproportionate burden to audit it in its current form. The new site is due to go live during the week commencing 28 September, 2020 and we are taking the necessary steps to ensure it will be fully accessible. We have already been developing the site with accessibility in mind and will be engaging with an external partner to audit the site and provide impartial verification that the site meets WCAG2.1 AA.

In the meantime, please contact us if you are experiencing any difficulties accessing information on the website or if you need information in a different format, email us at digitalmarketing@ljmu.ac.uk

Adjusting text size

You can increase or reduce the text size by using your browser's zoom function. On most browsers: pressing the Control and + keys together will increase the size of the page and pressing the Control and - keys together will decrease the size of the page. Pressing the Control and 0 keys together will return the page size to the original.

On a Macintosh computer, you should use the 'Command' key instead of 'Control' in these combinations. If this does not work on your browser, please consult your browser's help pages, or consult one of the websites which specialise in showing you the best way to adjust your computer to suit you.
