Accessibility

This accessibility statement applies to the Dyfed Pension Fund website, as administered by the Pensions Section of the Corporate Services department at Carmarthenshire County Council.

We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website.  For example, that means you should be able to:

change colours, contrast levels and fonts

navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

We know some parts of this website are not fully accessible:

the text will not reflow in a single column when you change the size of the browser window
you cannot modify the line height or spacing of text
