Five Areas Limited recognises the importance of making its digital services available to the largest possible audience and has attempted to design each of their websites (“Site) to be accessible by everyone. This Site was coded to comply with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 1.0. AA Standard. Users who wish to view these specifications can do so at:

We are committed to making all of our Internet documents accessible to everyone. To ensure that we meet or exceed the recognised requirements we continually review our Site and modify pages to remove accessibility problems for people with disabilities. Many documents on our web pages are in ASCII or HTML format, accessible to people who use screen reading software and to those with other vision or mobility impairments. Generally, we use Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) to create pages and documents that are accessible to that segment of our readership. In creating HTML documents, we follow W3 standards.

Currently, our Site also contains documents in Adobe Acrobat PDF (Portable Document Format) files; many people who use screen reading devices can`t read them. To solve that problem, Adobe Systems, Inc. is developing several products designed to make PDF documents more accessible to screen reading software. Adobe`s accessibility web pages ( describe their efforts.

We also provide elsewhere some Five Areas Limited publications in alternative formats for people who are blind or visually impaired. Please contact us for further details.

Five Areas Limited works extremely hard to ensure that all web developments meet with international guidelines of accessibility. Although we cannot guarantee that all users regardless of disability can access our information or services, we can however guarantee that any user who cannot access our information will be offered assistance by our staff to do so.
