Accessibility statement for e:Vision
This accessibility statement applies to e:Vision, provided by the University of Wolverhampton. E:Vision is an integral part of how students access a range of information about their courses, including enrolment and accessing results; therefore, the content is designed to be easy for everyone to find, access and use.
Getting the best from your device
We want as many people as possible to be able to use and access information within e:Vision. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change contrast levels
- zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- navigate most of e:Vision using just a keyboard
- navigate most of e:Vision using speech recognition software
- listen to most of the information on the website using a screen reader
It is important before accessing e:Vision that you are aware of the settings available for your hardware, such a laptop computer or mobile devices, including smart phones or tablets. These devices have individual accessibility settings that will help you access content, including website content. Depending upon your choice of internet browser of mobile smart device operating system, there are further settings to help you access our content. Such settings may include the ability to change colours, contract and the size of text and images.
You can find useful advice on making your device more easy to use by visiting AbilityNet, which provides step-by-step guides to making individual adjustments to your laptop, tablet or smart phone. The University also provides a number of assistive software products (e.g. Virtual Magnifying Glass, ssOverlay) as part of its Apps Anywhere software repository.
