The Local Government Pension Scheme website is committed to providing you with information and services that are accessible. The layout and design of this website has been produced to take into account the differing ways readers use websites, including those using screenreading software or navigating websites without using a mouse.
We have introduced the following features to help users of our website.
A hidden menu has been placed at the beginning of each page to allow screen reader users to link to the main areas of the page.
Headings and navigation menus
HTML heading tags are used to convey document structure. H1 tags are used for main titles and H2 and H3 tags for subtitles.
Navigation menus are marked up as HTML lists. This ensures that the number of links in the list is read out at the start and it can be skipped easily.
All images used in this site include descriptive alt tag attributes.
The text used on our site are can be changed in size. You can do this by using by changing your browser settings to your own preference. How to change text size
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the use of structured semantic mark up ensures that the content of each page is still readable and clearly structured.
Forms and fields
Most form fields also have 'label' and 'id' attributes to explicitly associate the form field with its label to allow for easy entry of data.
