Navigating Around This Website / Accessibility Features

 Mouse Navigation and    Keyboard Navigation:

We have designed this website to be as easy to use as possible for the great majority of internet users. If you are unsure of where to start looking for information, or require advice on using the site then this short guide will help.

Our website employs a number of accessibility features as follows:

  • All images have text alternates (ALT attributes).

  • The site has been designed so that the majority of text can be viewed on a variety of screen sizes. It has therefore been necessary to use a medium font size for these pages. If you find it difficult to read the text on these pages your browser may be able to help. The majority of browsers now have the facility to change the size of the text being displayed. In Internet Explorer 5 and above you can do this by selecting View on the browser’s menu bar, followed by Text Size from the menu list provided, then choose the text size that you would prefer. Netscape refers to this as Increasing or Decreasing a font, and is also found in the view menu. For further help on changing the way in which your browser displays website pages refer to the manufacturers Help facility on the browser itself.

  • Pages use flexible formats so they can be automatically resized for different window sizes and screen resolutions.

  • There are two menu bars for your convenience - a top header (duplicated at the bottom also) and a left hand menu. The top header has links to the most used pages. The left hand menu has links to other pages of interest AND a drop-down * Help Menu * under which (click on the arrow to the right hand side of the box to display the menu contents) you will find pages of interest - About Us, Contact Us, Shipping/Delivery etc.

  • Most of the links on our website will display an alternate picture when you move your mouse over them - so you know what you are about to click on.

  • A product search facility is provided on the top menu. On most pages you will find that your cursor automatically defaults to this box. Generally speaking, if you press the enter/return key whilst on our site we will attempt to validate a search term entered in this box.

    You can search for a DVD title by name, by an Actors name, or by a Directors name. Never use words like 'The' and 'A' in your search request - limit your search term to significant word(s). For example - if searching for 'The Italian Job' simply enter the word 'Italian' to be sure you'll get all the available results (different versions etc).

  • Useful particularly for users with disabilities - In some browsers you can use the keyboard to navigate this website.

    Tab Key (supported by most browsers): You can use the tab key to scroll through all the links on a page in turn.

    Access Keys (not supported by all browsers):

    • In IE 4+ / NS 6 / Windows - use the Alt key and the number below,
      followed by enter or return.
    • In IE 5+ / NS 6 / Mac - use the Command key and the number below,
      followed by enter or return.

Finding The Products You Want

At dvdorchard we sell DVD Videos, DVD-Audio discs, CDs, Books and a full range of games.

As explained below, there are many different ways to find the specific titles you want. Once you've found the title you want, click on the picture or title of that product and you'll be linked to a page that fully describes the product and allows you to order it by simply clicking the 'Add to Basket' button or save it to your wishlist by clicking the 'Add to Wishlist' button.

Browse Titles Shown On Screen - You'll find our newest and most popular titles shown prominently on many of our pages - Coming Soon, New Releases etc.

Search by DVD Title, Actor/Artist, or Director. Click the option you want to search by and enter the title/person's name into the box provided. This is a text based wildcard search which allows a fair amount of freedom depending on how much you restrict the search by your input.

Browse by Genre - If you want to see what we've got in a specific category (such as comedy or drama or XBOX), pick a category from the "Browse Genres" drop-down menu. You'll be linked to a new page that displays all the titles in that category.

Recommend A Friend

The hardest part of running an internet business is finding customers, or more particularly, having customers find us - it's tough - basically, there's no shopfront to walk past and wander into. Hence an important part of our business is the goodwill generated by word-of-mouth. We'd like to reward you for telling your friends about us so we've implemented a Find-A-Friend bonus system. You help us and we'll help you.

How does it work ?

You make a purchase from us and tell your friends about your experience.

Your friend creates an account on our site - when they do MAKE SURE you tell them to put your account name (email address) in the "more information" box provided. That way we can link your friend back to you.

Here's the good bit - when your friend makes their first purchase you get a $5 credit applied to your account to offset future purchases.

Conditions - not many but... If the order made is entirely cancelled your $5 bonus will be reversed. The $5 bonus can and will accumulate in the event you recommend multiple purchasers. This programme may be withdrawn at any time at the sole discretion of dvdorchard. Any credits on your account can only be redeemed as dvdorchard purchases. Any abuse of this programme will result in the reversal of any/all credits and cancellation of accounts, once again at the sole discretion of dvdorchard. No correspondence will be entered into.

AND ... the $5 bonus is not paid if the transaction involves any other form of reward, whether that be in the form of a $5 voucher to the customer or commission payment to an Affiliate. Essentially, we can only afford to make one reward payment, not two or three. Precedence goes to (1) customer voucher/coupon quoted at checkout, then (2) Affiliate commission from clickthru transaction and then (3) $5 Recommend A Friend bonus and similar promotions.

Your shopping basket allows you to accumulate products for later purchase.
