Accessibility

Accessibility Statement

All pages on this site meet all WAI accessibility Level A or Priority 1 guidelines, and most guidelines at Level AA or Priority 2.

The site markup is structured and clean to aid those using browsers that cannot display images and visual styles.

We provide aids to navigation

For those using screen readers, this site contains links to skip straight to the content of a page. Links are written to make sense out of context - that is, reading the phrase of the link by itself is enough to understand where that link might take you.

All links will open in a new browser window, and this includes all file download links (Microsoft Word documents and PDF files).

We design for lots of browsers

We have worked hard to make sure this site can be used by as many major browsers as possible. We have tested, and are satisfied with, the output of the site in the following:

  • Mozilla Firefox (version 2.0.0.14 on PC)
  • Microsoft Internet Explorer (versions 6.02 and 7 on PC)
  • Safari (version 3.1.1 on Mac and PC)

We make sure text can be re-sized

All text on this site is set to relative sizing units, so that it can be sized up or down using the appropriate tool in your browser. Please refer to your browser's help function or documentation if you are unsure how to do this.

We don't use access keys

Many assistive technologies make use of the keyboard for performing important tasks, such as navigation, selecting buttons, submitting forms and so on.

Some websites provide the user with additional functions via the keyboard, but we believe this is not yet widely supported or understood by the majority of users, lacks any standard across different sites and is often detrimental to those users who need to make use of the keyboard for fundamental tasks.
