Accessibility Information for People with Disabilities

The navigation bar

The navigation bar has a logo that gets you to the home page, and a list of entries to navigate the rest of the website. Each entry in the list has an associated shortcut key. The key to use for any entry is in brackets at the end of the entry. For example,
Accessibility Information (A)

To use the shortcuts in Internet Explorer (and finally, Netscape 6), use the Alt key and the shortcut key. This will highlight the entry in the navigation bar. Then hit return. So for the current programme, you would type
ALT-P Return
Nescape 6 users don't need the Return.

If you are bored with the navigation bar reading out all the time, you can skip the entire bar by clicking on its caption.

Accessing the Club

It is unfortunate that the club itself is not wheelchair accessible. It is "the room above the pub", and there is no lift. There is a loo at club level, one step, large, but not a proper disability loo.

We have had both attenders and performers who were unable to manage the stairs, and came in wheelchairs. We used the "four strong guys" method of bringing them up the stairs, on the theory that if we could handle Gary Baldwin's Hammond B3 organ console at 250 pounds, we could handle a person in a wheelchair. If this is acceptable (no, it is not good enough and we know it) then with advance notice (01787 211865) we will do what we can to help.

Mailings

We would be pleased if you joined our mailing list. If, however, the standard brochure is not suitable for you, we are happy to supply you with a programme in large text form. If you join the emailing list (same form as above), then you will receive the programme in machine readable form.

If you need the programme in some other form, please tell us, and we will endeavour to supply it in the form you need.

Accessibility Philosophy

This web site is maintained by Dave Lyons. Our aim is to provide a simple, easy to maintain (and therefore always up to date) listing of the Fleeces current programme, and to keep a little archive. We do not apologise for the lack of Java cartoons, multiframes or ornate tables. In particular we do not apologise for the lack of Macromedia Flash. Anyone interested in the effect of any of these on disabled readers might look at the W3C Web Accessibility Initiative.

Readers might click on the "bobby" site below, to check out this, or any other site for accessibility.

The University of Toronto has a nice downloadable programe which will test .html files for accessability using the WAI criteria.
