How accessible is Patchwork Hub?
Patchwork Hub is a growing employment platform committed to accessibility. We work very hard to make our website accessible to as many people as possible.
We’ve followed current web standards and accessibility best practices when designing our website. We're currently working with experts to test our website to ensure that it’s technically compliant with Level AAA of the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).
We’re also collaborating closely with employers to improve their own accessibility. We aspire to become the only non-disability-specific job board to reach AAA level of digital accessibility. In doing so, we aspire to push non-disability-specific job boards to make their websites as accessible as ours. Though we've come a long way in achieving this, as a brand-new social enterprise, we recognise that there is still much to learn.
For that reason, we always welcome feedback from anyone using our platform. If you have suggestions, issues or expertise in order to help us improve the accessibility of our website, please get in touch.
The text size on this site is set in a way that makes it resizable in any browser, should you find it too small to read comfortably.
Headings are used on each page on the website. They make it easier to read pages by supplying visual structure and help people using screen readers and other assistive technologies to navigate the site.
Whenever possible, links have been written to make sense when they are accessed out of the original context. This helps visitors who may use a list of links to move around the site, and all visitors to understand the destination of links.
The content of the site has been written to be readable by as many people as possible. Where possible, we have used plain, jargon-free language that's easy to understand. We are guided by Flesch-Kincaid Reading Ease and the Crystal Mark standard guidelines.
