The Geo People

We want everyone who visits The Geo People website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding – both now and in the future. To help us achieve this, we are incorporating best practices and standards as defined by WCAG 2.0 (level AA).

We strive to make our websites accessible to everybody because diversity and inclusion is an important part of who we are and what we stand for.

1. Finding what you need more easily

We look to ensure that our sites – external and internal alike - work with popular browsers on various platforms, from desktop computers to smartphones.

If you have any questions or suggestions about the accessibility of our sites, or come across any inconsistencies, please contact us.

2. Accessibility tools

Below are a few tips to help you better access our websites. For a more complete guide to making your computer accessible on the web, we recommend visiting the AbilityNet My Computer My Way website.

3. Making pages easier to read in your browser

Web pages can be difficult to view when the text is too small. Below is a list of web browsers that are supported on our sites, with instructions on how to increase the size of the text on any web page you are viewing.

4. Magnifying your screen

Another way to make text easier to read is by magnifying your screen.

All recent versions of Windows include a magnifier, which allows users to enlarge a portion of the screen. Visually impaired people, however, may find that they require fully-functional magnification software.

Read about screen magnifiers in Windows 8/RT, Windows 7 and Windows Vista.

Users running Apple’s OS X operating systems can use the in-built Zoom feature. Read about OSX accessibility features.

5. Using a screen reader

Windows users can use Windows Narrator which converts on-screen text into speech. This is available in Windows 8/RT, Windows 7, and Windows Vista.

In Apple’s OSX operating system, users will find the VoiceOver feature.

In addition, third-party screen readers are available such as JAWS (Job Access With Speech) and the freeware program NVDA.

6. General navigation

If you cannot see the entire page, use the scroll bar on the right-hand side of your browser to move up and down the current page. The Geo People logo takes you back to the home page. Clicking on the Back button of your browser's toolbar will return you to the previous page.

7. Site map

The site map can be accessed by clicking on Site map in the footer which appears on every page. The site map gives you a hierarchical outline of the entire website and links directly to content pages and sections. It's original state gives an overview of the first two levels. Clicking on the second level reveals the links to every page in that section.

8. Footer

The footer has four main navigation areas: Sections, Services, The details and Useful tools.

9. PDF files

We use PDF files to help us preserve the look and feel of our original documents. To open and view PDF files, you can download the latest version of Adobe Acrobat Reader free of charge.

Adobe also publishes information on accessing PDFs using screen readers.
