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.
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.
