Temple Ewell Parish Council publishes documents in a range of formats, including Microsoft Word and Excel, with Pictures usually in a JPEG Format. We want as many people as possible to be able to use those documents. For example, when we produce a document we make sure to:
- Provide an HTML option where possible
- Tag headings and other parts of the document properly, so screen readers can understand the page structure
- Ensure that we include alt text alongside non-decorative images, so that people who cannot see them understand what they are there for
- Avoid using tables, except when we are presenting data
- Write in plain English

If you need a document that we have published in a different format please either email the Parish Clerk - TempleEwellPC@Outlook.com or contact by telephone on 01304 361774. We will consider the request and get back to you within 14 days.
