Site services

Accessibility

We recognise the importance of providing a website that is inclusive and available for all user groups. This page explains:

  • our approach to making this website accessible;
  • the features provided to enhance the site’s accessibility; and
  • what to do if you have any questions or feedback for us.

Accessibility features

What makes this website accessible?

To ensure our website doesn’t exclude any users due to their abilities or methods, we use prominent colours, fonts, text, layout and navigation to ensure they are as easy to use as possible. Our webpages also cater for a range of different viewing devices and technologies.

What guidelines have been followed?

We aim to follow trusted web accessibility principles outlined by the Worldwide Web Consortium (W3C) and we believe that this website meets or exceeds the requirements of the Level A conformance.

The W3C Web Accessibility Initiative brings together people from industry, disability, organisations, government, and research labs from around the world to develop guidelines to help make the Web accessible for all.

Our commitment to Plain English

We also believe it is important to make things as clear as possible. As members of the Plain English Campaign, we are passionate about cutting through the gobbledygook and jargon of the retirement industry. That means making information clear and easy to digest across all of our communications.

A font designed for readability

The little things we change can help too. When we became Just, we created two brand new fonts to make things even clearer. Every letter of these new fonts has been tested for appeal and readability to make our content as accessible as possible.

Our font for headers includes a number of accessibility features:

Our font for headers includes a number of accessibility features
(1) Crossbar on I; (2) open crotch to minimise fill-in; (3) generous counters.


And we thought hard about including accessibility features for our main font too:

Accessibility features for our main font too

(1) Extended ascenders for better letter recognition; (2) larger dots; (3) extended descenders; (4) low join at stem; (5) longer tail.

We believe that even these small things can make a big difference.

How do I make the text bigger on screen?

You may use your browser settings to change the text size for this and other websites that you might use. The technique you use may vary (depending on the browser you use), but the following might help:

  • Google Chrome: Select one of the 'Text Zoom' options in the 'Customise and control Google Chrome' menu.
  • Internet Explorer: Select 'Settings', then one of the options under 'Zoom'.
  • Mozilla Firefox: Select the 'View' menu, then 'Zoom', then one of the options.
  • Opera: Select the 'View' menu, then one of the 'Zoom' percentage options.

Bear in mind that this isn’t an exhaustive list of all the browsers that are available to you. It's therefore worth taking a quick look at any documentation you have to be sure of the settings you need to use to adjust your viewing text.

Share price charting

We have provided a large font version of our share price charting tool. In addition, we have provided a version of our share price charting tool for colour-blind users, using colours that give adequate contrast. A text-based accessible equivalent to the share price charting is also available.

I’m having problems viewing the site

If you have any difficulties using our website, or have a suggestion that would help make our site more accessible to you, then please let us know. You can contact us using this webpage.

Our literature

What about the accessibility of your literature?

We are happy to provide any of our documents in alternative formats such as Braille, large print, or an audio CD. Our literature and documents are intended to help you – so we are fully invested in making them as widely accessible as possible.

How can I request something in an alternative format?

Give us a call on 01737 233 297 (8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday). Alternatively, go to our Contact Us page to request any of our content in one of these formats, and we will be happy to help.

Over the phone

What if I can’t hear or speak on the phone?

We understand and respect that not everyone is able to speak to us over a phone call. You might find it difficult to hear all that the other person is saying, for instance, or perhaps they may not understand what you're saying.

If you do still wish to call in, however, we recommend using the Next Generation Text Service (NGT) to help. Compatible with smartphones, tablets, and computers, this helpful service allows a ‘relay assistant’ to be added to your phone call to assist you. The assistant will speak your words to the person you're calling, and then type their reply so you can read it on your display instead.

Their service provides four options for this:

Each of these options provides detailed, step-by-step instructions to ease you through the process.
