We recognise the importance of providing a website that is accessible and available for all user groups. The Laurence King Publishing website has been developed to support Internet users who have disabilities. The pages within this website are in line with all of the priority level 1 (A) criteria of W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Wherever possible, we use text instead of graphics to reduce the download time of pages and increase your control. All images, where appropriate, have an alternative text attribute. A link to details of how to contact us for further information offline is provided from every page. The style of navigation remains consistent through the website.
Some users might find the site easier to read by increasing the size at which text is displayed. To do this you can adjust your browser's settings by going to the View menu, then select 'text size' or 'text zoom' or 'zoom' and increase the size of the text. Many browsers also feature in-built shortcuts to facilitate easy operation.
Changing the site’s background colour can be particularly useful for users who rely on magnification technology as white can produce an uncomfortable glare. It is also possible to change the colour of body text on the site. Both can be achieved by changing preferences in your browser: If you use Microsoft Internet Explorer, go to the Tools menu, select Internet Options, select Colours and make changes to text and background colours in the Colours panel. If you use Mozilla Firefox, go to the ‘Tools’ menu, select ‘Options’ and select the ‘Font and Colours’ button. From here you can override the colours used on this site by ticking the boxes marked ‘Always use my: Fonts’ and ‘Always use my: Colors’. You can also specify which colours you prefer text and links to be displayed in, and which background colour should show on the page. You can also choose colours to be used for links you have previously visited and links when your mouse hovers over them.
