Website Accessibility

HearVue is committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience and is actively working towards achieving a fully accessible website that endeavours to conform to the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

What We’ve Done to Make Our Website
an Accessible Experience:

Text Contrast

All text on this site has been created to have a contrast ratio over its background of over 4.5:1. This adheres to W3C Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 level AA.


All content images on this site are provided with descriptive ALT attributes. Graphics that are purely decorative in function have empty ALT attributes, to prevent them from displaying on screen readers.


All pages contain a link to the home page, sitemap, and search box. The primary navigation has been built in a consistent fashion to provide clear navigation throughout the site. Secondary navigation is provided for wayfinding through individual sections of the site.


Links have been written to make sense out of context, title tags, or spans of text only visible to screen readers; these have been used to expand on the meaning of short links.

Tips for Browsing the HearVue Website:

Skip to Content

For those using screen reader and non-mouse users, you have the option to skip straight to the content by selecting “Skip to Main Content”.

Screen Resolution

This website is designed to respond to the size of your screen. Resize your browser to the size that best suits your needs.

Magnify the Whole Screen

Many web browsers allow you to zoom in on web pages using simple keyboard controls. The magnifier allows you to focus on specific parts of the screen, enlarging the text and other page elements.

Customize the Mouse Pointer

You can customize a computer mouse pointer in several ways. For example, you can slow down the speed of the mouse pointer for easier handling. You can also change its appearance so that it contrasts more with the screen content.
