Lantra Accessibility Statement

Lantra’s key priority is to ensure that anyone involved in the land-based sector has access to products, services and advice to support workforce skills development.


Our website has been developed to provide comprehensive access in the virtual world.


In developing our website, we strive to work to WCAG 2.0AA standards.


In summary, you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 300% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)


AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

What we’ve done to aid accessibility


To ensure content pages are well structured, easily accessible and consistent, we use responsive Cascading Style Sheets. This means our content is available across a wide range of devices and platforms.


All content has been written and laid out on the page to enable it to be as accessible as possible. This includes easy to read copy with minimum technical jargon and meaningful text links, listings using bullet points and short paragraphs.


In some instances, content will have been written for specific audiences, so the terminology will be relevant to those audiences.


We use a standard 20 point font size on headings and 16 point on body copy. Text size can be increased using the Zoom function which is available in most browsers.


Our chosen website header and body copy fonts are Ubuntu and Open Sans. Ubuntu is recognised as being highly accessible.


Contrasting colours have been used across the website design to make it, wherever possible, accessible for people with visual impairments. We use contrasting, coloured ‘calls to action’ to aid navigation.

Downloadable documents

Most of our downloads on the site are in PDF format. PDF readers are available to download for free via Google.
