Accessibility

Lloyds Bank Commercial Finance recognises the importance of providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technical limitations or individual disabilities.

The site has been designed to aid both usability and accessibility and will be continually checked against these priorities to ensure standards are met wherever possible.

The site and the guidelines we adhere to are constantly changing. If you find any accessibility barriers, please let us know and we'll do our best to address the problem as soon as possible.

Key accessibility features
There are a number of features on the site that aid usability and accessibility. 

  • All text is resizable using your browser's text-resize option. 
  • If stylesheets are not supported or are turned off, information on the site can still be accessed and read. 
  • Navigation (or skip links), linking to the main sections of the site, is provided at the top of each page. 
  • A 'breadcrumb trail' is provided to help you see where you are on the site. 
  • Signposts are used on pages to recommend other pages with similar content. 
  • The colours used on the site have been checked using a colour contrast analyser. 
  • JavaScript is used on the site to improve the user experience. If JavaScript is not enabled we have ensured that the site still functions properly. 
  • If you use your own style sheet, it can be applied to allow changes in the site's appearance. 
  • Headings have been used on pages to create a structure that is easier for you to read. 
  • All hyperlinks make sense when read out of context, hyperlink text is notably different from other text and links change colour when the destination page has been visited. 
  • All images have been given appropriate alternative text.
  • Where multimedia has been used, alternative content is supplied.
