This accessibility statement applies to the website

This website is run by Nominet UK. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website and we are working to make it accessible and easy to use.

  • We have taken steps to ensure that you can:

  1. change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  2. zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  3. navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  4. navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  5. listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

  • We’ve also tried to make the website text as simple as possible to understand.
  • If you have a disability AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use
  • We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible, eg:

  1. some of the text will not re-flow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window unless it reaches a mobile equivalent zoom point
  2. most older PDF documents are not fully accessible to screen reader software
  3. live video streams do not have captions
  4. you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
  5. some of our online forms may be difficult to navigate using just a keyboard

A note on accessibility standards

We aim to comply with the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) current guidelines for accessibility; this is an ongoing process of re-evaluation and we are continually working to make our websites more accessible for people with disabilities as technology, and standards, allow. This includes the W3C’s Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG 2.0), which includes a series of conformance levels that may be used to review a website’s content for accessibility. We have reviewed our site against these guidelines and in the majority of cases achieve A or AA status.


This site’s responsive design is implemented using latest web standards like HTML5 and CSS3, and enhanced using the jQuery JavaScript libraries. The site is designed to work with any web browser on any sort of computer or device. More modern browsers will receive a richer experience as their capabilities allow.
