This accessibility statement applies to the whole of the https://feature-activity-sensitivity-tool.scot domain.
This application is managed by Scottish Natural Heritage (operating as NatureScot) on behalf of the FeAST Working Group. We want all users to have a positive experience in using the website. For example, that means you should be able to:
- change colours, contrast levels and fonts
- navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
- navigate most of the website using speech recognition software
We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.
AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

- With relation to the above WCAG section on keyboard input, the breadcrumbs of a search page are not accessible to keyboard users attempting to navigate through tab order.
