This summer, the Trustees at Buckinghamshire Disability Service (BuDS), gave a shoutout to AbilityNet for testing the accessibility of BucksWorkability.com.

AbilityNet confirmed that the website was well on the way to passing all accessible criteria, to help readers navigate the site and be able to operate all the website elements without using a mouse.

The result was welcomed by the job-seeker volunteers on the project, who behind the scenes build and designed the site every week. The volunteers are disabled jobseekers themselves and are part of the BuDS REACH4WORK digital skills project for 16-24 year olds.

The site passed all the accessible website test criteria, including being keyboard friendly, having a clear logical structure, including alt text for images and graphics and having a font size changer.

Andrew Clark, Chair of the Trustees said: "It's a huge credit to the whole team that we got such a great outcome to these challenging tests."
