3rd Party sites

We are not responsible for the accessibility standards of 3rd party sites that we link to from this website, this includes, but not limited to Journey Check and Youtube.

Recite Me

Recite me is a great accessibility tool available on any chilternrailways.co.uk page. It has language, appearance, text to speech and text size features that change the elements on the page for better accessibility. Please click here for a more information on Recite Me.

To activate Recite Me, press 'Accessibility' on the top-right of the page.

Keyboard access

We have provided ‘skip to main content’ links to allow direct access past the navigation menu to the page’s main content.

Text size

You can vary the text size by using your browser’s text resize option: View – Text Size.

Alternative text for images

All images have been given appropriate alternative text.

Heading elements

HTML heading elements have been used to represent page structure, supporting assistive technologies that allow page navigation from heading to heading.

Link text

All hyperlinks should make sense when read out of context, and hyperlinks are clearly presented in a different text style from normal body text.

JavaScript independence

Where JavaScript or other scripts are used for navigation or functionality, an alternative mechanism has been put in place in case your browser does not support these scripts.

Colour contrast

We have checked text and background colour combinations to ensure that the contrast is sufficient and we have also ensured that information is not referenced by colour alone.

Style sheets

We have used Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to control the presentation of pages and have used properly structured markup for content. If style sheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read.

Questions and feedback

If you have any difficulty in accessing any information on this website or if you have any feedback for us, we would like to hear from you. Please contact us.
