Six Town Housing would like to provide a website that is accessible to all and if you have any suggestions for making further improvements please let us know.

We aim for the website to conform to Level AA of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1, the international, governing authority on web development standards and practices. The W3C guidelines describe how to make web content more accessible and conformance to these help to make the web more accessible to users with disabilities and benefits all users.

Using a keyboard to navigate our website

If you have restricted mobility you might find it useful to use a keyboard to navigate our website instead of your mouse. Our website has been designed to be useable with the following keyboard commands:

  • Tab: move to the next interactive item (such as link, button, input)
  • Shift + tab: move to the previous interactive item
  • Arrow keys (up, down, left, right): navigate within some page component
  • Enter: interact with items on the page

Translating the language of text content or downloading it as audio

We use Browsealoud software within our website, which enables content to be translated into a number of different languages. It is also possible to download text content as an MP3 using Browsealoud. To use these functions, click the Browsealound icon which is located at the top or bottom of your internet browser depending on how you are accessing the website.


Images throughout the website have been assigned alternative text describing the contents or function of the item.
