Accessibility

What is Accessibility?

Accessibility, also known as Web accessibility, digital accessibility or eAccessibility, is the practice of creating websites that can be used by all visitors, including people with limitations, disabilities, or impairments.

PrimaryBid Accessibility statement

This statement applies only to www.primarybid.com, app.primarybid.com, and the PrimaryBid mobile app, all run by PrimaryBid Limited. The content should be clear, concise, and easy to understand. We designed it to be used by as many people as possible.This means that you and any user should be able to:

  • easily zoom in up to 400% without any issues;
  • navigate most pages on this website using only a keyboard;
  • access a large part of the website through speech recognition software;
  • listen to most of our website content with a screen reader.

We’re also constantly doing our best to make the texts on our website as simple as possible to read and understand. If you have a disability and want to make your device easier to use, we highly recommend visiting AbilityNet for additional advice.
