Meeting web standards

Richard Murphy Architects believe the Internet should be easy-to-use for everyone, including those with disabilities. With this in mind, we have adopted a policy of accessibility and have designed this website to meet current web standards.

All development work carried out on this website will adhere to current Web Standards, as defined by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

We are doing this to ensure our sites are compliant and can be displayed by W3C standards compliant browsers.

Visual Design

This site uses cascading style sheets for visual layout. If stylesheets are turned off, or not supported by your browser, the content on this site can still be accessed and read. All fonts are relative allowing users to resize text if required.

Features to enhance the site's accessibility:

  • All text should be resizable using the browser text resize option. 
  • All images have been given appropriate alternative text
  • The accessibility of the site has been tested on a wide range of browsers. Alternative user-defined style sheets can be applied to allow changes in the site's appearance without affecting the readability or accessibility of the information
  • A link to this accessibility statement on every page
  • A link back to this web site's home page on every page.

Design Guidelines

The website has been designed with these accessibility guidelines in mind:

  • We make sure that navigation throughout the site works in a consistent way
  • We use a standard web font to make it easy for all to read. In most cases, the size of the font can be adjusted according to the users' needs, using standard browser and operating system options
  • All the images are given ‘alt text' alternatives except those which are only decorative; the tags for these are left blank
  • We never use colour as the only way to convey information


While the pages can still be accessed in older browsers, to see them laid-out correctly will require a standards compliant browser. We would advise that you use up to date, fully supported versions of Chrome or Edge.
