Accessibility

We want everyone who visits the Therapix Biosciences website to feel welcome and find the experi­ence rewarding.

What are we doing?

To help us make the Therapix Biosciences website a positive place for everyone, we’ve been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guide­lines explain how to make web content more acces­sible for people with disabil­i­ties, and user friendly for everyone.

The guide­lines have three levels of acces­si­bility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Therapix Biosciences website.

How are we doing?

We’ve worked hard on the Therapix Biosciences website and believe we’ve achieved our goal of Level AA acces­si­bility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.
