Web accessibility conformance statement

Flourish works towards meeting the RNIB Guidelines for web accessibility. Our checkpoints are taken from the technical standard Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.0 (WCAG), published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

The site is tested regularly to ensure that we are working towards the standards.

We have tested the website using the following browsers:


  • Microsoft Edge
  • Internet Explorer 9, 10 and 11
  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Opera


  • Chrome
  • Firefox
  • Safari
  • Opera


  • Apple iOS – Safari
  • Android – Chrome

(For every browser, we aim to support the current major release, and previous stable versions)

Image Alt text and accessibility

As standard we only use Alt text where an image conveys essential information for the meaning of the page – for example a diagram about how to do something. Where an image is purely decorative we don’t use alt text as this is superfluous information, and extra ‘noise’ that someone using a screen reader will have to get through before reaching the essential information on a page.
