You should see several different kinds of link around the RoSPA site.

  • Normal links like this tend to link to other pages within the section of the site you're viewing.
  • Abbreviations and acronyms can be hovered over to deliver extended descriptions.

File downloads

Wherever possible we have converted documents into Adobe PDF format. Most operating systems can download and run the software needed to read PDF files, called Abobe Reader.

File descriptions are followed by icons, and their file size in Kilobytes (kb) or Megabytes (mb).
Documents that are available in different languages are followed by their ISO country abbreviation, and country flag.

We also have a policy of not opening any links in new windows, to keep window clutter to a minimum. Most browsers can open pages in new windows, or new tabs by right clicking on the link first and then choosing that option.

Reading Files

Typically you will need Adobe Reader or Microsoft Office to read these types of file, however you can download various programs to be able to read Word, Excel and PowerPoint files.

The following links all lead to external websites.

Microsoft has produced their own read-only Viewers for Windows PCs

You can also download free office applications such as OpenOffice which will allow you to read and edit documents too.

Lastly, Adobe provides a free PDF to text or HTML service on their website so that screen-reader users can read PDF content easily. Click here to use the service.

Screen Readers

We've attempted to keep the website as friendly as possible to users of screen reader software. Navigation links are generally in lists and pages are separated by correct headings, with the level 1 heading denoting the start of page content, and level 2 headings dividing it further.

If you regularly use a screen-reader to read websites and find the RoSPA site difficult to navigate, please do not hesitate to contact us and give us feedback. Click here to go to the Contact Us page.

All images on the site use alternative text tags, and have been made descriptive wherever possible, so that screen readers can communicate their content.
