It is the intention of Mayo County Council to present information on this website in a format which is accessible to all, regardless of ability or disability.
The site has been designed with the deliberate intention of avoiding clutter while providing consistent and easily identifiable navigation throughout. The use of colour, breadcrumbs and links back to main sections further improves navigation.
The site is developed using valid XHTML and cascading style sheets (CSS) which are screen reader friendly and make the site accessible to more of our citizens. Our site content is separated from presentational elements, which makes it available to any visitors that use technologies such as a screen reader or text only browser.
Accessible web sites prioritise clear content, structure and ease of navigation over visual aspects of design, however they also need not be visually unattractive, nor are they prevented from using the latest web technologies, provided that all information is still accessible to users.
You may find that on your screen the text is either too large or too small for your personal needs. Using the text size options, you can set a smaller or larger standard font size, and this will be applied to all pages you visit on our website.
