This is the official accessibility statement for the London Stock Exchange plc website.
The London Stock Exchange plc website has been built with the intention of making the content accessible to the widest range of visitors, regardless of disability or impairment. This has been achieved by adhering to best practices, such as compliance with W3C's WAI AA accessibility standards.
If you have any questions or comments, please contact us.
This accessibility statement records the main steps that we have taken to accommodate the needs of disabled people:
The pages on this website were built in 2019. Most pages on this site follow most of the W3C's WAI AA accessibility guidelines, and intend to adhere to the UK's Disability Discrimination Act. All pages on this site validate as HTML5.
All pages on this site use structured semantic markup. H1 tags are used for main titles, H2, H3 and H4 tags for subtitles.
All pages contain a link to the home page, and the menu system has been constructed in a consistent fashion throughout the website. The additional breadcrumb navigation system and selective quick links boxes are designed to reinforce awareness of the location of the page that is being viewed within the website, and to increase overall access to all of the information that is available.
All pages on the website include a search box.
Many links have title attributes, which describe the link in greater detail. Links are written to make sense out of context.
Some images used in this site include descriptive ALT attributes.
This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout.
If your browser or browsing device does not support stylesheets at all, the content of each page is still readable.
This site uses only relative font sizes, compatible with the user-specified "text size" option in visual browsers.
The most common visual browser is Microsoft Internet Explorer and we have provided the following description of how to change your font size display in MSIE version 6:
