We work to ensure equal access to information for all users, with or without disabilities, regardless of the device, software or network connection.
As The European Liberal Forum, we are committed to website accessibility. It is our aim that everyone should be able to use our website, no matter what your impairments and which technologies you use.
To that end, the website has been designed and coded taking best practice web accessibility guidelines into account.
Accessible content should meet the four principles of web accessibility (the ‘POUR’ principles):
You should be able to:
zoom in up to 300% most of the website without problems
navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
navigate most of the website using assistive technology like a screen reader or a magnifier.
We are actively working to improve the user experience for everyone by increasing the accessibility and usability.
Useful accessibility resources
The BBC has developed a series of accessibility guides (http://www.bbc.co.uk/accessibility/guides/) which provide step by step assistance on how to change your computer and browser settings in order for websites to be more accessible for you.
You may also want to customise your experience using accessibility assistive technology. Useful resources are:

When links are added in text, we make sure that the link text clearly describes the destination of that link, so that you end up exactly where you expected.
The website has been designed to meet the WCAG 2.0 recommended colour contrast ratios, making the website easier to use and the text easier to read.
If you would like to change the colour of the background or text then you can do this natively in most browsers. The BBC guide shows you how to personalise your colours. (https://www.ukyouth.org/accessibility/#:~:text=BBC%20guide%20shows%20you%20how%20to%20personalise%20your%20colours).
