Scottish Book Trust is an independent national charity with a mission to ensure people living in Scotland have equal access to books. Everyone should have the opportunity to improve their life chances through books and the fundamental skills of reading and writing. We are committed to making our websites and other digital products accessible to as many people as possible.
Measures to support accessibility
This website (https://digital-stories.scot/(this will open in a new window)) is a Squarespace site which has been built by Scottish Book Trust using page templates created by Squarespace. We have customised page templates and content with digital accessibility best practices in mind, and also run automated tests and manual checks to make further improvements. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- Change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- Zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
- Navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- Navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
- Listen to most of the website using a screen reader
- Access video content with captions
AbilityNet(this will open in a new window) has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.
How accessible is the Digital Stories website?
We are continually working to improve the accessibility of this website through our content curation, creation, upload and management processes. However, we know some parts of this website are not fully accessible.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee live videos are streamed with captions and some of our older videos do not have captions.
