At GKN Wheels & Structures we are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability.

Our site generally conforms to level Double-A (AA) of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) guidelines WCAG 2.1 These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities.

In addition to optimising the website from an accessibility perspective, we have also worked hard to ensure that our website is fully responsive and works well across all devices (desktop, tablet, mobile), and across most common browsers and operating systems.

This page documents some of the techniques which can be used to ease navigation and comprehension of our website.

Changing the colours

If you use magnification technology you may want to change the site colours, as white can give an uncomfortable glare. To do this, simply change the preferences in your browser.

In Microsoft Internet Explorer, go to the Tools menu, select Internet Options, select Colours at the bottom of the General tab and make changes to text and background colours in the Colours panel.

In Mozilla Firefox, go to Tools, select Options, select Colours in the middle of the Content tab and make changes to text and background colours in the Colours panel.

All content images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes. Those in purely decorative graphics or used for layout include blank ALT attributes.

Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page will still be readable.
