Datapharm Communications Limited is committed to making sure its web sites are accessible to everyone, including those with sight problems or other disabilities.
From this point on, when we develop new medicines information services and web sites, we will make sure they are accessible to people of all ages and all abilities.
We appreciate that some people will use special assistive technologies to read our web sites, such as screen readers and screen magnifiers. We will use best endeavors to make sure our medicines information services work well with these tools.
The X-PIL web site complies with the accessibility standards specified by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) (new window) and been checked by the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) (new window)
We make every effort to ensure our text is clear, simple and easily understood:
- Headings highlight sections of text
- Sentences are short
- Links use meaningful text
- Forms can be navigated using the tab key
Design and Layout
The site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control all of the presentation and layout. Page layout is consistent as you move from page to page.
We use contrasting text and backgrounds to improve visibility.
All our links clearly show if a new window will be opened.
The site has two key areas of navigation. Each page has a navigation bar across the top of the page. The right-hand section has links to useful information (including giving feedback) and quick links to recently visited patient information leaflets.
Changing your browser settings
The X-PIL web site is designed so you can change the font, size and colour of the text or background. You can also change the mouse pointer and use a keyboard instead of your mouse.
For detailed information on how to make these changes, visit the BBC website, My Web My way (new window).
Alternative text for images
For users with screen readers, all the images on the X-PIL web site, including those in patient information leaflets, have been marked up with alternative text if the image contains important information not already present within the leaflet's text.
Help with PDF files
There are Adobe Acrobat PDF files on this site. You will need the free Acrobat Reader software to view these files. If you do not have the software installed on your computer, you can download it for free from Adobe.com (new window).
