Using our website

To help us make the African Life Assurance website a positive place for everyone we are always looking for ways to make our website and online services easier to use. Where possible, we follow the guidelines developed by the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

Change your computer settings

There are many changes you can make to ensure browsing the internet is a better experience. You can change options in your internet browser – such as altering colours, changing text size or using voice activation – to alter the way you see, hear or use a website.

You can change the font size of this document to their preference through the browser. In Internet Explorer select View, then Text Size, and then your preferred size.

In Mozilla Firefox select View, then Text Size, then Increase or Decrease.


Finding your way around

We try to design our websites so it’s easy for you to find the information you need. If you get stuck, you’ll find help pages, site maps and contacts pages on our site.

Even fully-sighted people can find reading text on a screen difficult or tiring, so we have chosen an easy-to-see web colour scheme and a clear font type, size and colour.

If you use a screen reader

Not everyone navigates websites in the same way, so we’ve designed our sites to work with screen readers. We use text (in ALT tags) to describe images. We use descriptive links (e.g. Proposal Forms) so you know where the link takes you, and we don’t use frames which are difficult for screen readers and special browsers to interpret.
