We've have also designed all pages so that all information that is conveyed with colour is also available without colour. The colour scheme throughout the site has been checked against the following types of colour blindness and no problems have been detected:

Deuteranope
Tritanope

Standards

Studio is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. We are actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of our website and in doing so adheres to many of the available standards and guidelines.

The pages on this site conform to WCAG AA approved standards, complying with all priority 1 and 2 guidelines of the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make the web more user friendly for all people. We have reviewed all the guidelines and believe that we are in compliance but whilst Studio strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of the website.”

Images, videos and other non-text elements

Where ever possible we have made it so that Studio can be used
without graphics or images showing. Non-text elements, such as
images, symbols, audio, video and multimedia have text
equivalents if necessary, this is done by providing a descriptive
alt attribute for them. Decorative graphics or formatting
images have empty alt attributes.
