Using Our Website

The Herrington Carmichael website has been designed to be as accessible as possible for anyone visiting the website who are physically disabled or has a visual impairment.

All pages on this site aim to be accessible to WAI WCAG 1.0 AA or better, complying with priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines as interpreted by our web team. Should you encounter any difficulties relating to the level of accessibility of certain pages, please do not hesitate to Contact Us.

All pages on this site aim to validate as XHTML 1.0 Transitional, and use CSS 2.1 for visual presentation. Use of tables for non-tabular information is kept to a minimum. This may cause older browsers (e.g. Netscape 4.x) which do not understand standards-compliant code to display pages in a very basic way. However, the pages should still be usable. Wherever possible, we would recommend upgrading your browser to the latest version number to take full advantage of this site's advanced presentational features.

The Herrington Carmichael website has been designed to take advantage of the latest screen reader and adaptive technologies.
