Accessibility Statement

This website is run by CRiSAP, Creative Research into Sound Arts Practice, London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (UAL). This accessibility statement applies to crisap.org and its subdomains. Other websites and browser based systems on the arts.ac.uk domain have their own accessibility statements.

We commit to ensuring this website is as accessible as possible and we want as many people as possible to be able to use it. This means that you should be able to:

  • access the website regardless of the device and browser you are using
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We have also tried to make the website text as easy to understand as possible although we recognise we have more work to do on this.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
