Accessibility Policy Statement and Standards Compliance
This website is run by Royal College of Art. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- 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)
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

How we tested this website
This website was last tested on 10th May 2020. The test was carried out by RCA staff using WAVE Online Web Accessibility Evaluation tool (https://wave.webaim.org).

WAVE can identify many accessibility and Web Content Accessibility Guideline (WCAG) errors, but also facilitates human evaluation of web content.
