Accessibility

We’re looking for the very best talent, so we’ve implemented a number of features to make this website easy to use, especially for users with disabilities.

Style sheets

This site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) for visual layout. Style sheets can be disabled or over-ridden on most browsers to customise the website appearance to your preference.

Tabbing

We appreciate that not everyone using our sites can use a mouse. So we make sure all of our websites can be browsed in a logical manner using the Tab button. Pressing the 'Tab' key while on a web page will select the next link on the page. You can press 'Tab' repeatedly to get to the chosen link. Once your chosen link is selected, you can trigger it by pressing the 'Enter' key on your keyboard. You can move backwards through links by pressing 'Shift' + 'Tab' together.

Font sizes and zooming

Here’s how you can resize fonts and/or increase page zoom in different browsers.

Internet Explorer 6

Click the View menu, then select Text Size and then choose larger or largest (the default is medium).
Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel (if you have one).

Internet Explorer 7/8

Click Page then Zoom. You can then increase or decrease the page's zoom level.
You can also use keyboard shortcuts. To do this, press Ctrl and '+' (plus) to increase the zoom and Ctrl and '-' (minus) to decrease the zoom.

Internet Explorer 9/10/11

Click Tools then Zoom. You can then increase or decrease the page's zoom level.
You can also use keyboard shortcuts. To do this, press Ctrl and '+' (plus) to increase the zoom and Ctrl and '-' (minus) to decrease the zoom. Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel (if you have one).

Firefox

Click the View menu, then select Text Size and then choose whether you would like to increase the size (increase) or decrease the size (decrease).
Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key and at the same time, push the - or + key.
Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel (if you have one).

Opera

Click the View menu, select Zoom and then choose your desired zoom level.
Alternatively, press Plus (hold Shift and press the = key) to increase the page zoom, or press the minus key (-) to reduce the page zoom.
Alternatively, hold down the Ctrl key and scroll the mouse wheel (if you have one).

Safari

Click the View menu then click Make Text Bigger or Make Text Smaller.

Chrome

Click the Chrome menu on the browser toolbar, find the 'zoom' section in the menu and select '+' to make page content larger or '-' to make page content smaller.
You can also use Ctrl and '+' (plus) (Option and '+' on Mac) and Ctrl and '-' (minus) (Option and '-' on Mac) keyboard shortcuts to increase and decrease content size respectively.

Forms

Labels are used to assist access to form fields. All forms should follow a logical tab sequence.

Colours

Our site has been designed to be easy to read through its colour combinations. If you’ve any difficulties reading parts of our site, try increasing the font size or altering the visual appearance of your browser using its controls, or by overriding the default CSS stylesheet.

Links

We’ve worked hard to ensure that our links are meaningful. Some links are explained in greater detail by using a title attribute, visible when hovering over the link.

Scripting

JavaScript is used on the site to improve usability. All pages and processes are still accessible and usable if JavaScript is disabled or unavailable.

Flash may be used on the site to enhance the user experience. An effort will be made to make sure that if you don’t have the correct plug-in for Flash elements, it won’t prevent you from accessing the core content of our website.

Browsers

This website is built to XHTML 1.1 and CSS 2.0 standards. This website will function and look as intended in browsers that support these standards fully. The most common of these are:

Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer (8+) and Opera on Windows
Safari, Chrome and Firefox on Mac OS X

If you don’t have one of these browsers installed or are unable to upgrade, you may find the website easier to use by disabling CSS altogether - please see your browser's help documentation for further information. If you're using Internet Explorer 6 or 7, we'd strongly recommend updating to a more current version.

We’ll continue to make improvements to us.firstgroup.com but FirstGroup is not responsible for the accessibility of any other websites which this site may link to.
