The site is designed to maximise accessibility, including:

  • Scaleable text, to ensure legibility. Use "View/Text size" on your browser toolbar, to change the size of text in your browser.
  • For those using a screenreader or with images turned off on their browser, all images (other than those solely used for layout decoration) carry text alternatives (alt tags).
  • Access keys are enabled, particularly useful for those using screenreaders, PDAs and mobile phones. This feature allows the visitor to move directly to a link. The shortcut keys can be accessed by using ALT+ access key (Windows) or CONTROL+ access key (Mac), followed by Return. Access keys are as follows:
    "1" Skip navigation (available in some browsers)
    "2" Home page
    "3" Contact us
    "4" Site Map
  • Liquid design has been used, which allows the page layout to change to fit the browser window dimensions. This minimises excessive whitespace and the need for a horizontal scrollbar.
  • This site has been designed using Cascading Style Sheets. You can therefore override these styles if you are using your own Author's stylesheet.
  • All pages on this site are designed according to the W3Consortium Content Accessibility Guidelines Priority 2.
  • The site conforms to the W3 Consortium web standards.
  • If you have any comments on the site accessibility, we welcome your comments, by email.
