The CSP website has been awarded a See it Right logo by the Royal National Institute of the Blind for its commitment to best practice website accessibility.
The logo is given to sites that pass the RNIB's rigorous audit process, which aims to determine if a site can be used by anyone regardless of their abilities or the technology they use. The Society's head of new media, Rob Ledger, paid tribute to his team, who worked to ensure the site's 4,000 pages were up to scratch. "We're delighted to receive the logo. Everyone involved should be very proud to have achieved this high standard of accessibility in such a large, dynamic website," he said. "Our challenge now is to maintain this standard as we deliver ever-increasing amounts of new information and services to members." Meanwhile, 20,000 members have now registered to use the new site, launched nine months ago, as the amount of member-only content has continued to increase. Many areas of the site require members to log in to see the full content, in particular a lot of the news articles, publications and newsletters. Member-only items are clearly marked with a red plus symbol, and restrict non-registered members to seeing just a short summary of the full text.
