Accessibility on the Lead Scotland Website

Lead Scotland is committed to providing accessible information. We continually review our site to make information accessible to the widest possible audience.

If you have any problems with the website or accessing information please email or use our contact form.

We aim to meet WCAG version 1.0 (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) Conformance Level “AA”, which means that all Priority 2 checkpoints will be met. Look at Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 1 for the full list of checkpoints.

Alt-text attributes

A brief alt-text attribute accompanies all images on this site. It identifies the image or its function. Images used for layout purpose only, or purely as decoration, have an empty alt attribute.

Access keys

We have not used access keys on this website. There is no recognised standard for combinations of keys; some screen readers use certain combinations for different functions.

Visual design

This site uses cascading style sheets (CSS) for visual layout. If your browser or browsing device does not support style sheets the content of each page is still readable.


All text hyperlinks are written so that they make sense when read out of context.
