Web accessibility means enabling people to view a web page the way they wish to view it with the equipment that they have available. In other words, making sure that as many people as possible can use a website, irrespective of physical impairment (such as loss of sight or restricted mobility), cognitive disability (such as dyslexia), or limited English language. It also means ensuring a website works on the broadest possible range of computer hardware and software, and its use does not depend on having the highest specification equipment or latest browser.

The Skewen and District Historical Society is fully committed to making its online content accessible to all.

Further help


This site has been developed so that it can be navigated using the cursor keys and not the tab key.
The tab key will still work to jump from link to link but important information might be missed when using a screen reader.
To navigate simply use the up and down curser keys and the screen reader will read every line including the links. Then simply press enter over a link to activate the link


If tables contain blank cells they are marked by a dash (-)
