Accessibility

It is very important to us that our website is accessible to as many people as possible.

The site currently conforms to World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) web accessibility priority level 1. These standards ensure improved accessibility to allow partially sighted users to navigate through the website with screen reader and mangnifying tools.

TEXT TO VOICE

Newsham Hanson are committed to helping support our customers with as many options as possible.

From here you can download a FREE version of "Natural Reader®" software to your personal computer or that of anyone who would benefit from it.

"Natural Reader®" uses a natural sounding voice and an easy to use interface to enable you to convert any written text into voice. Whether it's MS Word, a Webpage, PDF files, or emails, "NaturalReader®" can handle the text with a few clicks of the mouse.

What is more, with "NaturalReader®" you can convert text directly to an MP3* or a WAV* file. (*=Optional version to purchase direct from "Natural Reader®").

Now you can listen to web sites, electronic books, and more.

Just save any webpage as a "text file" and open it in this software to hear the text.

Enjoy listening to pages of text...

  • Install the software
  • Go to a web page
  • Click the file tab, save as a text file
  • Open it in the "Natural Reader®" software and click listen!

User friendly design

In addition to the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) guidelines we have implemented our own design rules to make the site clear and easy to use:

  • Using meaningful ALT text so there is a descriptive alternative for all images.
  • Using clear descriptions and calls to action on hyperlinks.
  • No use of frames, which are difficult for special browsers to display.
  • Limited use of JavaScript, which doesn't work with some browsers and screen readers.
  • Using an easier-to-read font set against a light blue background with no obtrusive background images.
  • No pop-ups or obtrusive advertising. The Newsham Hanson website currently carries some external advertising.
