The National Development Finance Agency (NDFA) is committed to making the information on this website accessible to all, regardless of ability. The following statement outlines progress towards providing a high standard of accessibility throughout this web site.
Compliance to the Web Accessibility Initiative Guidelines
All HTML documents on the NDFA website (www.ndfa.ie) adhere to Web Accessibility Initiative WCAG 1.0 Level-AA (Double A). This is an internationally recognised benchmark for accessibility. Compliance to the Level-A standard was implemented in May 2006. Compliance to the Level-AA standard was implemented in July 2006. This was confirmed in an independent evaluation.
The website uses W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) technologies wherever possible. However there remains a large number of documents that use the Portable Document Format (PDF). Certain documents on this site are available only in this format, which require you to download and install the free Adobe Acrobat Reader software. If you cannot access the information in any PDF please email email@example.com
We will continue to monitor developments and changes in accessibility guidelines to improve the accessibility features of our website.
Some documents, such as certain publications and very long documents, will continue to be published in PDF format because of their size or the nature of the information within the documents. Accessibility and usability features in PDFs include correctly marked up structure, the addition of bookmarks and internal links for ease of navigation, tagging and alternative text for all images. In future, all PDFs published on the site will be made accessible, in line with guidelines set down by Adobe.
