Accessibility

GlaxoSmithKline has an ongoing commitment to ensuring that the content on this website is accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of ability.

We believe that this website meets or exceeds the requirements of the level A criteria of the World Wide Web Consortium Web Accessibility Initiative (WCAG WAI) 2.0 guidelines.

Text size

You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: in many web browsers this can be accessed by selecting View ? Text Size or by pressing Ctrl + and Ctrl - on your keyboard.

Alternative text for images

All appropriate images have been given alternative text.

Heading elements

HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.

Link text

All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.

JavaScript independence

Where JavaScript or other scripts are used for navigation or functionality, an alternative mechanism has been put in place in case your browser does not support these scripts.

Colour contrast

We have checked text and background colour combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by colour alone.

Style sheets

We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.

PDFs

In many cases we have provided an HTML version of PDFs on this website, however if you would like to use a screen reader to read PDF documents you can find out more at the Adobe Accessibility Resource Center.
