The TIGER project partners are committed to ensuring the content on this website is inclusive and accessible to the widest possible audience. We are actively working toward achieving Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 AA compliance as a minimum wherever possible, and are regularly reviewing our website.
This statement applies to content published on this website – interregtiger.com – and not to content on our project partner or third-party websites.

How we are making this website accessible
As part of our efforts to achieve WCAG 2.1 AA compliance, we are working to ensure the following:
- the content across site pages and downloadable documents should be written in plain English and easy to understand;
- for our French audience, the content should be available in French;
- it should be possible to zoom in on the site to enlarge the content without elements ‘breaking’;
- it should be possible to navigate the majority of the site using a keyboard or speech recognition software;
- it should be possible to use the site with a screen reader;
- navigation options should be consistent and identified correctly;
- text should use a colour that contrasts sufficiently against its background colour for legibility;
- images should have appropriate descriptions/captions and ‘alt’ text;
- buttons and links should be clearly identified;
- tables should use row headers, where appropriate;
- forms and form controls should provide appropriate feedback and error messages;
- downloadable documents, such as PDFs, should be accessible.
For a more comprehensive list of compliance criteria that we are testing the site against, please see the WCAG website.
