Churchill Opticians takes pride in the accessibility of its website. This site has been designed with a number of accessibility features which are listed below.
Images on our website have alternative text attributes, often known as alt text. This means that when an image is used on a web page to convey information its content is also described in the alt text. This means that the image can be understood by text browsers and assistive technologies such as screen readers. If an image is used for simply decorative purposes, the text attribute for the image is left empty in line with accepted best practice.
We have tried to use combinations of colours that provide sufficient contrast between foreground and background across the sites.
If you spot anything that gives you problems on this site please let us know.
The following instructions will set the minimum font size on your computer’s system, so the size will apply to every site you visit.

If you are using a screen reader, we hope you will benefit from our use of meaningful headings, link text and alternative text to navigate our websites. We have also tried to make tables and PDF documents as accessible as possible. If you do come across a PDF document you cannot access, we provide links on every document cover to the Adobe online PDF to text conversion tool as well as a link to download Adobe PDF Reader, which is free and can be used to access PDF files.
