We have aimed to create sites that are available to everyone including those with sight, audio and motor impairment restrictions.
• We aim to use a web font so all text is easy to read. • We have appropriate alt tags for images to convey information. • We ensure that navigation through our websites works in a consistent way. • We do not rely on just colour as the only way of giving information. • We avoid the use of images of text wherever possible, and provide equivalent text links that consist of images.

• Standards We have reviewed the guidelines and believe that our pages comply with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. Whilst we would like to say this is categorically so it is a judgement call; many guidelines are intentionally vague and can not be tested automatically. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that all these pages are in compliance.
We have strived to make all pages on this site validate as XHTML 1.0 Strict.
• Layout The site uses Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control all of the presentation and layout. Tables are only used for data presentment. As a result screen reader users can use the screen reader's navigation key to get around the site. If you are listening to the site, menus are grouped together in a more logical fashion.
• Content The content has been written and formatted to make it accessible. For example: o Headings highlight sections of text o Sentences are short with the meaning at the beginning o Links use meaningful text o Forms can be navigated using the tab key.
Through research of standard guidelines, Tesco.com are continually working to improve the accessibility of our sites that we have, in the meantime should you experience any difficulties please contact us explaining the problems you encountered.
