Accessibility

The Pupil Inclusion Network Scotland is committed to making our web site accessible to as wide an audience as possible.

We have ensured that we have met or we exceed the requirements of both the World Wide Web Consortium's (W3C) Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) and Section 508 of the American Workforce Investment Act of 1998. We strive to obey the spirit of the UK Disability Discrimination Act 1995 with respect to the provision of services online, as required by the Disability Rights Commission. We aim to make all our pages validate as HTML5 and use structured semantic mark-up.

Many Internet users of all abilities sometimes find websites difficult or even impossible to use simply because of the way they are designed. This website has been designed to be as accessible as possible and to be compatible with the types of adaptive technology used by people with disabilities, including screen readers. The PINS site has also designed to be responsive for viewing on smart mobile phones, tablets and other devices using a clean modern look with emphasis on an easy to use navigation system.

CSS, short for Cascading Style Sheets, a feature of HTML that gives both Web site developers and users more control over how pages are displayed. With CSS, designers and users can create style sheets that define how different elements, such as headers and links, appear. These Style Sheets can then be applied to any Web page.
