All images on this site are accompanied by brief alternative text which describes the image or its function. The alternative text is only visible when the browser’s automatic image-loading feature is turned off.
Hyperlinks are accompanied by a text description of the link's purpose or destination. In most cases the description will be in the following format: 'link to the BBC News site - opens in a new window'. Links to external websites and documents always open in a new window. Links within this site open in the window that you are using.
The font size on this website can be adjusted by selecting a preferred 'A' size using the letters at the top-right of the page. (Please note that at the largest font-size setting you may notice occasional word-wrap errors).
Most content on the site is provided as HTML web pages. Some content is, however, still provided in Adobe Acrobat Portable Document Format (PDF) files, and Microsoft Word and Excel files. Not all files are in an accessible format, but the AHRC is committed to producing and publishing accessible PDF files in the future. To view PDF files, please download Adobe Reader from http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/.
If you discover a PDF file on the site and you need it to be published in an accessible format, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone 01793 41 6000.
Video subtitles and podcast transcripts
The AHRC's videos are hosted by You Tube and embedded in pages on this site, such as in the Watch and Listen section. The AHRC is working towards providing subtitles for all of its videos. The AHRC does not recommend using or endorse the content of You Tube's automatically-generated subtitles/captions as they are inaccurate.
The AHRC's podcasts are provided with transcripts which can be downloaded.
