Website Accessibility at Northern Tea Merchants


With regards to our website, we've attempted to comply specifically with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

However, we are committed to an on-going process of improvements to meet these guidelines and we've taken care in creating our website to make it easy for everyone to use. In particular:

Screen size
Our site can be viewed at a minimum screen resolution of 800 x 600 pixels, which means the width of the page fits the screen without scrolling from side to side.

We've structured all the product sections to follow the same route, so you know where you are at any time.

Easy viewing
We've used relative font sizes (except where text is in graphics) in our style sheets so that the text size will increase if the screen size is increased.

All modern website browsers offer Zoom functionality, which addresses accessibility needs for users without the website itself having to offer a text size adjustment tool. You can find details of the zoom function for some of the main browsers at the bottom of this page.

Text size
If you want to increase or decrease the size of the text, simple click on 'view' in your web browser, or hold down the 'alt' key with '-' or '+' to decrease or increase the size.

Important information
If any important information is relayed within an image, it will always be accompanied by alternative text so that the information is present even if the images do not load. If an image is used for style purposes only, no text will appear. Also, no important information will be colour coded, so it is visible to everyone at all times.

Site map
We've included a site map, which you can use to navigate to any particular page quickly and easily.


If you have difficulty accessing the site or have any comments or feedback, please don't hesitate to contact us:
