Cryptic is committed to ensuring we offer an open and accessible approach to all of our work. It is important to us that our websites, other digital and social media, printed resources and, of course, live events, can be experienced and enjoyed in the best possible way. We follow best practice guidelines and toolkits across all our publicity materials and are continually looking for ways to improve. We welcome your feedback;  please get in touch by emailing: planning@cryptic.org.uk

Online

The Sonica website has been designed to be as easy to use as possible. However, there are some simple changes you can make to your desktop computer, mobile phone or tablet to make any website, including ours, easier to use.  The BBC have a great guide which includes:

  • Making text larger
  • Using a different font
  • Changing colours
  • Using screenreaders
  • Using your keyboard instead of a mouse
  • and text-to-speech features

 

You can access all of their ‘How To’ guides here

Print

When we produce print, we:

  • aim to use text that is 12 point, and always use a Sans Serif typeface;
  • use black text on white or other clear contrasting colours;
  • avoid essential information being placed over images and contact details are always displayed;
  • use plain English.

 

If you require large print or audio-described versions of any of our printed materials, they are available on request using the above contact details.

In Person

At our live events, we offer discounted tickets for disabled patrons, their carers and personal assistants, and work closely with our partners to offer a range of facilities to make your visit more enjoyable.

You will be always be able to find out about venue access including: accessible parking, drop off points, entrances, ramps and lifts, wheelchair and mobility scooter provision, assistance dogs and more when Sonica returns in 2022.
