Accessibility Statement

Bead & Trim is committed to ensuring digital accessibility for people with disabilities. We continue to make changes to improve the user experience for everyone and apply the relevant accessibility standards.

The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) defines requirements for designers and developers to improve accessibility for people with disabilities. It defines three levels of conformance: Level A, Level AA, and Level AAA.


Wherever possible, Bead & Trim will aim to adhere to level AA of the WCAG 2.1 guidelines, which states that sites should be:

  • Perceivable - Information and user interface components must be presentable to users in ways they can perceive.

  • Operable - User interface components and navigation must be operable.

  • Understandable - Information and the operation of user interface must be understandable.

  • Robust - Content must be robust enough that it can be interpreted reliably by a wide variety of user agents, including assistive technologies.


The majority of this website is fully accessible to WCAG 2.1 AA guidelines, and we run weekly audits to identify any new problems. However, we are aware that some parts of the website aren't fully accessible, including:

  • Error messages on the Sign In page for the username and password are sometimes not read by a screen reader, along with some form focus issues encountered by keyboard navigation.

  • Similar error with the Cart page where error messages may not be read out loud by a screen reader.

Where our features are not accessible, we ask that you please contact us at the email and phone listed below where we will be happy to assist you.


In order to ensure accessibility we also:

  • Incorporate accessibility into our procurement practices.

  • Have an appointed accessibility officer and/or ombudsperson.

  • Provide our staff with continual accessibility training.

  • Have clear organizational accessibility targets and responsibilities.

  • Confirm formal accessibility quality assurance methods.

As part of our efforts to achieve WCAG 2.1 AA compliance, we use UsableNet's AQA and AAAtraq as an ongoing monitoring service.

We welcome your feedback on the accessibility of the Bead & Trim website. If you have experienced any accessibility barriers while using any part of, please let us know:
