We hope that you find our website easy to use. We have followed guidelines to enable as many people as possible to use our site, whether they use assistive technology, or a mobile device to do so. We aim to provide users with as much choice as possible. For instance, course handbooks are available in both HTML and PDF, and we make use of video for users who prefer this medium.
In constructing this site, we referred to up-to-date accessibility guidelines. Please note however that a few of the multimedia resources created prior to the site rebuild may not comply with these. We have retained these resources as they were designed to be optimally accessible to the audience they were aimed at, and continue to be very popular with visitors to the site.
If you have difficulty using the site, or have any suggestions, please contact us. We are also happy to help if you require advice on ensuring your own site is accessible.
Here is a brief outline of the accessibility guidelines which informed the design of www.brite.ac.uk

- All meaningful images and graphics contain appropriate "alt-tag" elements.
