This page explains the features that have been incorporated into to provide a level of accessibility for all users.

Text Size

If you find that the text is too small for you to read, you can change it to a size you're more comfortable with:

- In Windows Internet Explorer, use the View > Text Size menu.
- In Macintosh Internet Explorer and Netscape 6 and 7, use the View > Text Zoom menu.
- In Opera, use the Zoom selector.
- In Firefox and other Mozilla browsers, use the View > Increase Text Size option.
- In Safari, use the View > Make Text Bigger option.
- If you use a wheel-mouse, you may be able to change the text size by holding down the Control or Command key and turning the wheel. In some browsers you can change the text size using Control or Command and the + and - keys.

Images on

Images have alt text where they add to the comprehension of the page. All trivial or decorative images have null Alt text.

Our Accessibility

We’re aware there are aspects of our website that are not fully accessible, these include:

- Many of our documents such as our Funding Guidance are in PDF format and are not fully accessible.
- While we endeavour to add alt text to all images, there may be instances where this has been missed.
- Some links may open in a new window without warning.
- Some parts of our website including images, website language, forms, page titles, headers, buttons and links may not be fully compatible with assistive technologies.
- Colour contrasts of website content may not be high enough and some text spacing may not match the minimum requirements.

Improving our Accessibility

As part of a programme of Digital Transformation, Creative Scotland has been actively working towards meeting Scotland’s Digital First Standards. This includes ensuring that we fulfil accessibility requirements.

Our Digital Transformation programme timelines have been affected by COVID-19, and the programme is now due to be completed in the first quarter of 2021. In working towards this timeframe, we have a detailed workplan in place to re-develop and re-design which includes the following:

- Undertaking a comprehensive accessibility audit.
- Complete website redesign that puts accessibility requirements at the heart of the design.
- Implementation of enhanced cookie control to allow users to easily turn cookies on and off.
